“Firdus: the Memory of a Place” is a memory-book about the Firdusi street, the last vernacular district in the center of Yerevan. Authors from various fields study the different forms of memory functioning in this small fragment of the city center of Yerevan. In addition to research articles, the book includes stories of local residents and family photo archives.
Firdus is valuable for its multicultural image, vernacular architecture and diverse daily life.
Due to these intangible values and memories, urban space acquires new semantic layers, which are presented in the book.
