    Mardin is an ancient city in the south-eastern part of Turkey. It has a dense and intricate urban texture woven with stone walls, narrow streets and inner courtyards. In this poetic space, people from different ethnic origins and religions have been living together for centuries. The brief of the project for Mardin Artuklu University was to design a religious complex, which brings the worship spaces of three religions in Mardin ( İslam, Christianity and Yazidi ) together. This brief, just after the interest it attracts at first sight, arouse questions. Is it only a kind of gesture for being democratic and plural, to bring these religions which are highly differentiated from each other together in such a complex? Will it end up with a kitsch which is nothing but an empty symbol? The power of architecture, when it touches one’s soul without belonging strictly to cultural symbolism or historical conventions, is regarded as the medium to go beyond these questions. In the religious complex designed, the space tries to sustain the sole essence of spiritual spaces in a timeless manner. It lets different religions be themselves in different spaces while making them a part of a common experience outside daily routine. The different worship spaces is not regarded as singular objects which can be compared to each other, but a part of a bigger whole which can be regarded as a timeless space. Articulation of the masses and spaces with earth-coloured-concrete, water and courtyards connects the space to the poetic atmosphere of ancient Mardin.

                    On the 15th of March 2011 began the armed war in Syria. At first civilians protested nationwide peaceful against the regime of Bashar Al-Assad, whose forces responded with violent crackdowns. In the wake of the Arab Spring, people rushed into the streets for political reforms. The hard action of the security forces caused that the protests escalated into a rebellion that spread across the country. This degenerated to a civil war. The Free Syrian Army ( FSA) is a group of defected Syrian Armed Forces officers and soldiers to fight against the Assad regime. The democratisation of Syria, the original motivation doesn´t exist anymore. At the forefront of the fights are religious and ethical reasons. It is no longer about the overthrow of Assad. How does it feel to escape war and to leave your life as you have know it? Syria´s leftover is the story of those who have escaped war. The best way to reflect the cause of war is to let those people tell their story. Thousands of people have fled to Turkey. Turkey has a direct border to Syria which the Syrian people are able to cross the border for security. Especially women and children. At night. Everybody flees at night. During the day no one can escape. Otherwise you will be shot dead, says Turkiye. Turkiye Huseyin has escaped with her four daughters from the war. Since then, they have been living in Mardin. Mardin is a city in southeastern Turkey, about 30 km to the north of the border to Syria. The population of Mardin speaks mostly Arabic. Many Syrians flee to this town, because in this way no linguistic barrier exists. The family has experienced many awful moments. The result of these experiences are mental wounds. Mostly Eye. After she withnessed how people were beheaded in Aleppo in the street. “Before the war Syria was wonderful. Now everything lies in the remains. There is just killing now . The girls got raped, says Turkiye and stresses that she never ever wants to go back to Syria again.

                      Tausende Menschen fliehen in die Türkei. Die Türkei hat eine direkte Grenze zu Syrien, über die sich die Menschen in Sicherheit bringen. Vor allem Frauen und Kinder fliehen. “Wir sind in der Nacht an die Grenze geflohen. Jeder flieht in der Nacht. Tagsüber kann keiner fliehen. Sonst wird man erschoßen”, sagt Turkiye. Turkiye Huseyin ist mit ihren vier Töchtern dem Krieg entflohen. Seitdem lebt die Familie in Mardin. Sie uralte Stadt Mardin liegt im Südosten der Türkei, rund 30 km nördlich der Grenze zu Syrien. Die Bevölkerung Mardins spricht überwiegend arabisch. Sehr viele der Syrier fliehen in diese Stadt, da dadurch keine Sprachbarriere vorhanden ist. Die Familie hat viele schreckliche Momente erlebt. Die Folge dieser Erfahrungen sind seelische Wunden. Am meisten betroffen ist die 13-jährige Eye. Nachdem sie mit eigenen Augen gesehen hat, wie die Menschen in Aleppo auf offener Straße enthauptet werden. “Vor dem Krieg war Syrien wunderschön. Jetzt liegt alles im Trümmern. Dort wird nur noch getötet. Die Mädchen werden vergewaltigt, sagt Turkiye und betont, dass sie nie wieder nach Syrien
