The event is finished.

The title ‘All-Purpose’ refers to a known expression used for construction material and/ or products that are used for more than a single purpose, and it also refers to the systematic consumption of stone in Palestine as a physical and symbolic matter serving multi-layered agendas. All-Purpose builds up its content on stone matters, it is a six-year-long experiment-based research that formalizes into a series of site-specific stone structures in Palestine. The work was first presented in the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale that ran from May to November 2021, and following Venice, the work is set to be installed in Jericho, Palestine where real estate projects have annihilated the use of public spaces. The work will be made available as a private space/living room/diwan, placed in a public setting to be used for all purposes

In this house specifically, you see: how it became a city? How it grew? What were its first features? And the context for an entire life Muharraq lived in the nineteen eighties. The Architectural Heritage House is home to the artistic works, drawings, architectural photographs gathered or drawn by the architect John Yarwood in homage to his stay in the city of Muharraq between 1983 and 1985.
