1.2 Rawabi City, Palestine: 1 hectare Urban Sample

 

The urban sample of Rawabi City is designed to cut through the fabric of the city in a 100 m x 100 m square. In Rawabi City the close proximity of other programs to the Central Business District show the importance of residential, education and also religious facilities. This sample is to the east of the business area and has a relativly low density which is typical of Rawabi as a whole. Though this sample is not predominantly residential, its interesting that there are roughly 60 to 70 families living within this hectare.
