The Jerusalem Fingerprint
The Hansen House Center for Design, Media and Technology, 14 Gedaliah Alon St.
House for reservation
In many respects, the Pro-Jerusalem Society, which was active from 1918 to 1926, shaped the image of Jerusalem as we know it and defined an urban conservation plan that had previously not existed in the city. The Society`s strength and influence stemmed from its diverse membership that consisted of representatives of all the religions in the city, artists, planners, government officials and citizens. Pro-Jerusalem`s activities were articulated on different scales, ranging from ceramic tiles to a municipal zoning plan, and as early as a century ago created the image of Jerusalem as we perceive it today.
During this session on Jerusalem`s evolving conservation policy, parts of the exhibition Pro-Jerusalem – 100 Years of Conservation will be on display. The exhibition was first shown at Jerusalem Design Week 2018 and examined the design-related relevance of the issues that the Society addressed 100 years ago. It also assessed the insights gained from a survey conducted among 100 Jerusalemites who were asked: "What would you like to conserve in Jerusalem?" The discussion held at this session will deal with conservation as the Society viewed it a century ago, compared with the contemporary processes involved in drafting a conservation policy for Jerusalem. It will seek to hear from the general public, Jerusalemites and non-Jerusalemites alike, what is important to conserve in the city. The Jerusalem conservation policy team will describe the work process associated with preparing the plan, its preliminary results and the dilemmas that arose when drafting the evolving policy plan.
