Architects and Planners for Justice in Palestine: An Interview with Abe Hayeem

Abe Hayeem, chair of Architects and Planners for Justice in Palestine (APJP), speaks with arenaofspeculation.org in a discussion covering professional ethics and modes of action being taken by architects and planners in solidarity with the Palestinian spatial struggle.

Specifically, the discussion focuses on the work of APJP in highlighting the role of Israeli architects and planners in ongoing practices of colonization, and in holding them accountable for these actions through international bodies and, further, how this work closely mirrors the role of UK Architects Against Apartheid (UKAAA) in the South African struggle.
