Brief About The Project: 

Capturing the exquisite abandoned, unreclaimed controversial land of Al Baqourah, located on the Northern borderline between Jordan and Occupied Palestine by a journey that narrates the site's story and uncovering the inaccessible fragments of the site. Shedding light on this forgotten site which is undergoing an important political issue of reclaiming the land.
A walking trail, following the trace of the preexisting railway, stitches existing fragments as well as new minimal interventions, reducing materials to those on site plus cor-ten steel, inspired by the industrial ruins on site.
