The rehabilitation of traditional architecture in Jericho (Palestine)
The unique characteristics of the Jericho area provide excellent opportunities for the proper valorisation and promotion of existing resources. The conservation project for some historical mud-brick buildings respects the principles of eco-sustainability and biocompatibility. The life-cycle of materials and renewable resources are of the utmost importance for both reflecting on the interaction between humans and the environment, and for attempting to safeguard the local cultural heritage even though it has been severely impoverished by the continuous geopolitical instability.
