The Lower Jordan River constitutes both a physical political border between Israel, the Palestinian Authority, and Jordan. Over the years, the river has suffered from neglect and became a channel for sewage discharge.
This project proposes a new settlement based on socio-economic cooperation designed to create a sustainable ecological environment. The project integrates efficient water technologies in order to develop regional agriculture and economy.
The focal point of this project is the restoration of the destroyed Abdullah Bridge, which in the past served as the main access between Jerusalem and Amman, turning it into a platform for dialogue. Additionally an educational center will be built for the benefit of all populations, with an emphasis on integrating the river into the planning.
