The recent hardening of the border zone in the
Palestinian territories by the Israeli government requires a responsive architecture that can
heal the many fractures which have been created. Seeking a critical form of architecture
practice has thus become an urgent and vital part of any effective regeneration plans for Palestine, a country which is now fragmented and spatially denied its own basic
As practicing architects, urban planners and
academics, we are searching for potential spaces of possibilities that can be used to empower the fragmented Palestinian community and bridge the gaps between the divided
spaces they now live in.
Hence the process
initiated by Palestine Regeneration Project Forum (PRPF) -- which we invite you to
participate in with design projects, writings and events -- aims to explore, both theoretically
and practically, the spatial and economic potentials of Palestine. The intention is to cultivate possibilities for change. Our interest within the PRPF is to share experiences and projects and texts through this online public forum. As such, we hope that it can act as an
umbrella to broaden the debate and to create conditions for new design proposals while also sustaining ongoing initiatives.
