Digitizing Jerusalem’s Archives: Urban Heritage in the Age of Digital Culture
Hosted By: Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University
The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University invites you to a seminar with Dr. Noah Hysler Rubin, Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design.
The Jerusalem Architectural Archives, a collaboration of Jerusalem Development Authority (HARLI) and Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem, is an extensive project of heritage documentation and digitization. It aims to locate and digitize official and personal documentation pertaining to the city’s modern building and planning, and make it accessible to the public. The main objective of the project is to provide access to historic collections of Jerusalem planning and architecture, to improve sustainable development and conservation practice and enhance heritage research and democratization. The archives also constitute a unique platform from which to study anew the modern history of Jerusalem, from the Ottoman era to the British Mandate. This presentation will discuss the integration of study of town planning (aka urban design) in Jerusalem from the Ottoman era to the British Mandate, which formed the backbone of future planning and development of the city.
