Abstract: 

An upheaval , where unsolicited violence has bloomed is a child to the social, political, and economic condition. It is neither a leader nor a follower. Upheaval expresses a different scenario that coexists within the larger cultural context; it re-examines the context it is situated in and generates new conditions. Upheaval demonstrates a collective behavior that is attempting to grab onto an alternative way towards the future. Considering the leading culture of architecture today, instead of preserving the loss, embracing the cycle of degeneration and regeneration as continuous events can result in an alternative strategy for architectural conservation. In the process of introducing such a concept, can architecture take the form of an upheaval, a radical break that resonates enough to generate shared emotions?
