    In thirty years of military and civil rule, British planners prepared five different town plans for Jerusalem. The plans treated the Old City as an urban emblem, marking it for full conservation and detaching it from the rapid development of the new city. These trends determine the city's expansion to this day. The lecture will explore themes of development, conservation and restoration through the perspective of early British town planning and its implementation in Jerusalem.
