Future Aleppo is an interactive, Unity built, animated VR experience. Visitors enter Mohammed's home city of Aleppo. Visually, the city and its buildings replicate the creative style of Mohammed’s physical 3D models. Mohammed is your guide throughout your virtual journey. As an active participant in the experience, you get the chance to walk around an unbuilt city scape that is littered with paper. By picking up pieces of paper, you get to make and throw paper aeroplanes, which when thrown at specific spaces then triggers a building to grow before your eyes. Each either reflects Mohammed’s memories of buildings in Aleppo, or a building that he has imagined will help to create his ideal version Aleppo.
