THE ‘ADDRESS’ PROJECT

The research on the: ‘archaeology of the address’ in urban planning proposes a critical perspective on urban regeneration and planning processes in ethno – national conflict areas. It includes a multi –  dimensional theorization and a new micro geography methodology all aimed to analyze planning and property historiographies of addresses in Jaffa and West Jerusalem which were owned by Palestinians before 1948 and are now owned by other owners. The results of the research suggest a wider alternative reading of planning processes and practical planning tools for promoting recognition and justice in cities.

By pressing on the addresses in the maps of Jerusalem and Jaffa it is possible to enter the historiographic files of the investigated addresses.
