Abstract: Seven years of destructive war in Syria caused huge damage in different sectors, the amount of
waste materials came out of destruction clearly created a big problem to manage and solve in
the post-war reconstruction era. This paper aims to suggest and investigate the future
possibilities of using the destruction materials in building and reconstructing housing for
internally displaced people and refugees willing to return to Syria.
The proposed project suggests the building of housing modules in rural areas of northern Syria
using materials from the rubble to achieve different goals, recycling the materials since
construction materials are rare and expensive, to give the opportunity to city reconstruction by
moving out the rubble which helps in the reconstruction management process by effective waste
management.
An alternative approach propose to deal with destruction waste materials more effective and
productive to help in the management and reuse for the reconstruction of transitional housing
project.
