GSAPP Palestinian Project: Introduction

Oct 25 2011 - 11:20am

GSAPP: Palestinian Project is a 3rd year Master of Architecture Studio focusing on historical sites within the country of Palestine. It is a unique time for Palestinians as they try to earn their "seat" within the United Nations. The studio is composed of 8 GSAPP students with professors Anthony Tung and Craig Konyk leading the studio and research being conducted. The team of students will explore different historical centers within Palestine, learning from the historical architecture within the country. With the leadership of RIWAQ, a NGO working on the architectural renewal and preservation of the region's most important historical sites, the studio will develop design problems and solutions that will cater to the needs and improvements of these historical centers.
