Can MIT help engineer a break with history in Jerusalem?
The steering committee of Jerusalem 2050, a joint initiative of MIT's Center for International Studies (CIS) and the Department of Urban Studies and Planning, hopes that the answer is yes.
To that end, the committee has just launched a design competition called "Just Jerusalem: Visions for a Place of Peace."
The idea is to get purchase on the problems of this fractious city by looking at them as challenges in urban design rather than in international diplomacy.
