Abstract [en]

In january 2013, I travelled with my studio to Israel. This project is a collection of what I experienced on our journey through the country, and the thoughts it evoked. It is also a collection of symbols and metaphors found in the areas we visited.

 

Tel Aviv is widely known as the “White City”. According to the myth, it rose out of the dunes of sand as a new Hebrew city. However, deeper investigation reveals that a part of the municipality is established on the post-Nakba ruins of the former village Manshiya. This village was almost totally erased, partly for political reasons.

 

The project is an exploration into the story of erasure, and an attempt to evoke the traces of what once was there.  I have proposed an underground structure hidden in sand.

The objective is not to present a final answer, but to contribute to an ongoing discussion of who is the winner or loser in the writing of history, and what role architecture has in this battle.
