Thresholds - Attabat

* UNDER CONSTRUCTION *

It Only Takes One Threshold
Attabat produce the Palestinian scale inside the camp. This 'scale' http://bartlettlobby.com/authors/samar-maqusi produced -from the act of spatial violations- plays a pivotal role in how the Jordanian government defines its mechanism in intervening inside the camp, and further sets the terms of the political relationship (relationship of control) with the refugees.

The Attabat are based on the most recent analysis and theory in my research which addresses the initial forms of 'spatial violations' and their impact on producing the Palestinian scale inside the camp. The 'scale' produced from spatial violations plays a pivotal role in how the Jordanian government defines its mechanism in intervening inside the camp, and further sets the terms of the political relationship with the refugees. I chose Attabat as it's the first architectural element the refugees built as a form of a spatial violation. It remains to be the only public form in the camp, but what we decided to do with the Attabat is add a space for a tree, or planting as that has completely disappeared from camp shelters due to complete lack of non-concrete space.
