Social Integration by Urban Design

My project aims to create an urban innovation hub that allows for flourishing, both economic and societal, in an integrative way that enables asylum seekers to smoothly transition into a seamless part of Israeli society and economy.

This modeling of integration of asylum seekers and urban face-lifting of run-down neighborhoods can easily be reproduced in several other locations and countries where asylum seekers are currently fleeing to.

I aspire, through the design and implementation of my holistic urban renewal project, to create a model that can be replicated in countries around the world.
