Welcome to the Palestine Land Society Competition

The competition aims to secure the best design in an annual contest for the reconstruction of Palestinian villages destroyed in 1948. The Israeli ethnic cleansing of Palestine in 1948 depopulated 675 towns and villages, mostly destroyed. Documentation is provided herein for most of the destroyed villages with the purpose of redesigning these villages on the same village site but with updated conditions of population and services. The documentation includes 6 maps, a report of 11 items and other data for each village. The terms of the competition are given herein. Three Palestinian universities so far are participating. An international jury will judge the result.

Three winners will be selected with monetary and recognition awards. The first prize includes a travelling fellowship in a European country.
