Thu, 14. Jan 2016, 20:00-22:00 … Designing Peace: Reimagining the Jerusalem Seam Towards an Israeli-Palestinian Agreement Presentation of Karen Lee Bar-Sinai, Jerusalem (in English)

Eine Veranstaltung in Kooperation mit der Zentralvereinigung der Architekten, Vorarlberg Since territorial disputes are resolved through spatial resolutions, architects and planners should be involved in crafting them. SAYA/Design for change – an Israeli based practiced, has worked for the past decade to develop this pioneering approach and has created numerous visions for peace. In this lecture, Karen Lee Bar-Sinai will share the roles that architects and designers can have in visualising how peace could and should look like, and the ways to bring urban vision and design into peace proposals and affect peace processes. In line with the focus of the current exhibition in the museum- “Endstation Sehnsucht”, Karen Lee will share visions for the Jerusalem seam. She will go through various proposals for sites along the seam – some produced in collaboration with Palestinian architects, and dive into concepts which have been disseminated amongst high-ranking decision makers and officials, and have served Israeli-Palestinian leaders during previous negotiations.
