Description Change this

Tactics for the return of Israeli settlers within the political fiction of a West Bank decolonisation. In 2016 the UN declared Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal. A material aspect is prominent in the debate about their evacuation: the reintegration of settlers into Israeli territory.

The political roles of architecture from informal urbanism to material agency are to be explored within the fiction of a West Bank decolonization. Return to Zion draws from a material-semiotic approach to critically translate cultural paradigms into urban tactics, and proposes a rooted rehousing of settlers into the Israeli urban fabric while exposing the spatial implications of conflicting political agendas.
