|Abstract:||Jerusalem is a holy city known for its strong religious background, it is a city that has been in many long religious battles in history. Most of those battles were between the Jewish, Christian and Islamic people, at times they occurred amongst two different religions and at other times the battles were between all religions at the same time. Each religious group would attempt to claim their part of the city. Today Jerusalem is made up of many divided areas which is home to each of the different religious communities. Many of these areas have access restrictions imposed on the locals and outsiders, mainly other religious communities. I wanted to create a vision to introduce affordable and sustainable living options to the people of Jerusalem, through the introduction of a building that promotes the creation of new living, new lifestyles, new communities and new friendships which leads to a harmonic and peaceful Jerusalem. As a result I chose the Local Apartment program. I wanted to bring people together in Jerusalem, to create peace between people of all different religious backgrounds and to break the barriers of traditional behaviours and beliefs, where as a result of friendships networks will form and enable people to have access to other restricted community sites and food and healthcare availability, therefore people will have an opportunity to have better lifestyles. My Vision: • To provide for & to bring together multicultural families in Jerusalem by providing modern, sustainable and affordable living, • To create opportunities for new living, new lifestyles, new experiences, new communities and new friendships for the people of Jerusalem, and • To accommodate people of all religious backgrounds and beliefs to encourage the freedom of religion and to bring people together regardless of their backgrounds and religious beliefs.|
