  1. Thumb up Thumb down +1

    why the hell decolonizing architecture is considered as an Israeli project?? As i know it’s a pure Palestinian Project with a jew architect “Eyal Weizman”.. there is something called “PALESTINE” ArchDaily people..

    Decolonizing architecture is great idea.. but i hope we will get the benefit of this theory very soon.. keep it up!
