| Kabul | Deh Ghouchak

The neighbourhood of Deh Ghouchak adjoins the 'urban village' of Deh Afghanan, one of the few areas in the city-centre of Kabul to retain a traditional settlement pattern. Homes in the area show how indigenous forms and techniques have beenĀ adapted to the urban context. Deh Ghouchak was the focus of municipal upgrading works in 2011.
