Pisgat Zeev, Jerusalem

Commissioned Ministry of Housing and Construction
Scope Approximately 3,000 housing units
Status Implemented, 1984-1998
Description

Pisgat Ze'ev was the first neighborhood built in the framework of the "Northern Jerusalem" regional planning.

The neighborhood's urban fabric was designed as a combined web of diverse activities: housing, employment, commerce, education and leisure – all on an urban network. All these functions (including traffic and pedestrian requirements) are interwoven, without the artificial separation into "zones", prevalent in public construction until that time.

The design of the streets was based on a continuous construction that creates traditional urban spaces - alleys, streets, boulevards, roundabouts and parks.

The project was planned as a partner in Yaar Architects.
