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 have been invited to participate. It is hoped that an international planning body might be requested to administer this Competition. An international jury made up of 7 experienced professional will judge the submissions and will select 3 winners with monetary prizes. In addition, the First Prize will include a travelling Fellowship to visit a European Union country.
