    Thesis Abstract

    POST-TRAUMATIC URBANISM

    Cities are plagued with traumatic events, natural catastrophes, wars, economic conflict and infrastructural breakdowns. Cities become traumatized by these disaster and malfunction moments within the urban fabric as the remnants of disaster will arise. The thesis is investigating on manifesting trauma through different stages and phases.
    Trauma here has a galvanizing catalytic goal here and is different from how it is conventionally understood. The story is set up in the city of Tehran after the predicted massive earthquake.
    The vast majority of buildings in Tehran are located on the convergence of about 100 fault lines which in its present architectural form are incapable of withstanding even a moderate earthquake. Tehran is going to get devastated and must be rebuilt. The scenario is that the government is collapsed; there is no instant control from the power on the organization of the city and destroyed neighborhoods as nodes of malfunction begin to be re-occupied opportunistically.
