Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio | A team of Afghan workers on the walls of the newly restored Ikhtyaruddin Citadel, Herat. The project generated almost 70,000 man-days for both skilled craftsmen and unskilled labour. In the context of increasing pressure for wholesale 'redevelopment' of the traditional fabric of Herat's Old City, the restored citadel will serve as an example of the potential for adaptive reuse of public historical structures for cultural and educational facilities.
