Thesis Book (2014)
Can architecture embody a controversy? This question introduces the theory that a structure can claim ownership of divergence, war and antagonism. "Unyielding Perspectives: A Museum Between Controversies" investigates the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through history, landscape, and culture. Architecture that remains neutral yet embodies the history of two nations must represent both timelines simultaneously and without bias. Israel and Palestine’s narratives have become entangled by the conflict that divides them. The final design of the museum abstracts the natural and cultural landscape, guiding the occupant through Israel and Palestine’s turbulent past. The objective of this thesis is to represent both cultures equally and without bias, establishing a space where both are to be protected.
