  • ARCHITECTURE AND CONFLICT

    The work of this research group investigates the impact that conflict has on the production and perception of architecture, space and place making, as well as the effects that architecture, space and place have on conflict. Most of the research takes a multidisciplinary approach, linking anthropology, sociology, history, architecture and urban planning. Our research emphasises the crucial role that architecture and built heritages play in the occupation or dispossession of land and space resulting in various forms of urbicide or spaciocide.

    The concept of an observatory on symbolic violence derives from the ascertainment that the occupation of the West Bank engenders a less obvious violence against Palestinian culture and identity.
