The above is excerpted from the forthcoming Forensic Architecture/Situ Studio report on the use of White Phosphorous in densely populated urban environments. This animation is based upon footage from the Jan 17th 2009, White Phosphorus strike on the Jabalya UNRWA school in Gaza. The incident was documented by the AFP photographer Mohammed Abed. These photographs are analyzed here in relation to a digital model of the surrounding context to elucidate a series of scenarios, as well as their potential effects, that may be expected at the architectural scale when air burst white phosphorus munitions are deployed.
