Entry Description

Capturing the exquisite abandoned & unreclaimed controversial land of Al-Baqourah, located on the Northern borderline between Jordan & Occupied Palestine by a journey that narrates the site's story and by uncovering the inaccessible fragments of the site which holds historical, natural & architectural significance.

A walking trail, which follows the trace of the pre-existing railway, stitches existing fragments as well as new minimal interventions, reducing materials to those on site; rusted concrete plus cor-ten steel and glass, inspired by the industrial ruins on site.
