Al Nouri Complex
2021 – Mosul, Iraq
In collaboration with the Turkish-Belgian architect Ali Cicek and the Mexican restoration specialists Andrea Monroy and Diana Fonseca, PRODUCTORA designed a proposal based on two plazas flanked by porticos and a large central hypostyle hall as a shaded and cool epicenter for community life. The competition was organized by UNESCO and is part of a larger effort aiming to restore the urban, social and cultural fabric of the Old City of Mosul following its tragic destruction at the hands of ISIS in between 2014 and 2017.
