ARCHITECTURE OF RESISTANCE: CULTIVATING MOMENTS OF POSSIBILITY WITHIN THE PALESTINIAN/ISRAELI CONFLICT. Yara Sharif. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2017. Design Research in Architecture. 234 pp. with 220 ills. (14 col.). 22 x 24 cm. ISBN 9781138694293 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 175454. Publisher's description: Architecture of Resistance investigates the relationship between architecture, politics and power, and how these factors interplay in light of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. It takes Palestine as the key ground of spatial exploration, looking at the spaces between people, boundary lines, documents and maps in a search for the meaning of architecture of resistance. Stemming from the need for an alternative discourse that can nourish the Palestinian spaces of imagination, the author reinterprets the land from a new perspective, by stripping it of the dominant power of lines to expose the hidden dynamic topography born out of everyday Palestine. It applies a hybrid approach of research through design and visual documentary, through text, illustrations, mapping techniques and collages, to capture the absent local narrative as an essential component of spatial investigation.
