Description

Research informs the development of a project
which, rather than defusing these characteristics,
attempts to integrate them within the scene of a
political struggle. The proposed project dramatizes,
through its architecture, a Palestinian disobedience
to the colonial legislation imposed on its legal
territory. In fact, the State of Israel masters the
elaboration of territorial and architectural colonial
apparatuses that act directly on Palestinian daily
lives. In this regard, it is crucial to observe that
63% of the West Bank is under total control of
the Israeli Defense Forces in regards to security,
movement, planning and construction. Weaponized Architecture is thus manifested as a
Palestinian shelter, with an associated agricultural
platform, which expresses its illegality through
its architectural vocabulary.
