cultural and social context Edit

The village of Ar Ramadin al Janub is situated in the seam zone of the Qalkilya Governorate and is collocated between the separation wall and Israel.

The village has around 80 students who attend school (primary and secondary) in Qalqilya and Habla. Children and youth use a bus provided by DCO (District Coordination Office) to go from Ar Ramadin al Janub, through Habla check point, to primary and secondary schools. The Habla check point is particularly tough, and is managed by private Israeli contractors, which worsen the controls on cars and people.

materials and building techniques Edit

We decided to use the tents as a resource, in particular re-using the metal tubes structure as a grid around which build the new walls.
