Palestinian and Israeli architects divided over UKTI visit


Angela For me it was a really important trip, irrefutable evidence of woman architects' particular sensitivity to the spirit of a place and the geographical nature of culture. Less happily it was a wake up call; impossible not to see with one own eyes how architecture all too easily acts as a stooge to power politics and how once our profession stoops... the corruption feeds itself. Impossible too not to admire the sheer resilience, oscillating between steadfast optimism and black humour, shown by our architect hosts and their colleagues. I now try to run my practice like Khilda and Nadia's Nablus friend with the five children, who insists on generous credit to all in her team, who she calls her extended family. Cany Ash
