Or Yehuda Urban Renewal

Part of a national urban renewal project, a coherent plan prepared for the city of Or Yehuda, combines land use assessments, vehicular and pedestrian traffic, the design of public buildings and open spaces, together with the renovation of hundreds of dwelling units. This plan has changed the impoverished city into a most desirable place to live in.

The unique process in which 150 asbestos huts, expanded with the tenants participation to become dwellings of high standard, exemplifies the complexity of the project.
