Weaponized Architecture : The Impossibility of Innocence Paperback
Research informs the development of a projectwhich, rather than defusing these characteristics, attempts to integrate them within the scene of apolitical struggle.
The proposed project dramatizes, through its architecture, a Palestinian disobedienceto the colonial legislation imposed on its legalterritory.
In fact, the State of Israel masters theelaboration of territorial and architectural colonialapparatuses that act directly on Palestinian dailylives.
In this regard, it is crucial to observe that63% of the West Bank is under total control ofthe Israeli Defense Forces in regards to security, movement, planning and construction.
Weaponized Architecture is thus manifested as aPalestinian shelter, with an associated agriculturalplatform, which expresses its illegality throughits architectural vocabulary.
