About My Work
My work focuses on the history of the built environment of Israel-Palestine, and in particular on the mutual constitution of urban and housing history. Specifically, for example, my study reveals that Sir Patrick Geddes' celebrated 1925 plan for Tel Aviv was realized by urban workers, who auto-constructed small houses and autonomous neighbourhoods at the edges of the plan area.
