Architecture of Peace is a long term international research project initiated by the international architecture platform Archis in collaboration with a number of different partners. The exhibition is based on project work carried out over a number of years by a network of architects, urban planners and scholars on the international platform ‘Archis Interventions’, as a response to specific post-conflict situations in war zones and to provide support through active intervention in the rebuilding of cities as a means to ensure peace. War and conflict are a constant across time. To confront this reality, peace missions, rebuilding operations and international laws have been developed as tools to help create stability and peace after conflicts. This is very important, but the road to sustainable peace is arduous and difficult.
