(PRPF) Palestine Regeneration Project Forum  is initiated by Golzari - NG Architects (NGA) with the close collaboration and support of Professor Murray Fraser. NGA was originally set up in London in 1992 with the intention of addressing social, environmental and cultural issues in architecture. The practice has been focusing in the past few years on contested spaces mainly in the Palestinian West Bank and Gaza Strip regions. Aiming at widening the network and creating a more interdisciplinary team, the PRPF is now expanding to act as a platform for key academics and practitioners, architects and planner who want to open up the dialogue about Palestine and make a contribution either through their intellectual input or practically engagement with specific design and regeneration projects.
