Description

Through dozens of maps, drawings, and archival and modern photos, the Manual for the Rehabilitation of the Historic Centre of Ramallah documents, analyzes, and evaluates Ramallah’s historic center, which lost approximately 50% of its historic buildings and spaces since the 1930s.

The manual presents a detailed analysis of the morphology of the historic fabric comprised of neighborhoods (harat), buildings, and public and private spaces, and explores the social, economic, and political changes of the area from the beginning of the nineteenth century through today. It also provides a classification of the building typologies and architectural elements of its historic buildings, and introduces the principles of conservation, restoration and construction inside the historic center.

The publication is a primary outcome of a project entitled “Development Instrument: Capacity Building for the Protection and Management of Historic Cities,” which was implemented by the Center for Cultural Heritage Preservation in Bethlehem (CCHP), in partnership with Rehabimed, RIWAQ, and Cultech, in cooperation with the municipal councils of Bethlehem, Ramallah, and Greater As-Salt.
