The development of Haifa's urban landscape reflects the historical processes that impacted its design over time. The exhibition sheds light on a chapter of the city's history that is absent from most realms of memory – the portraitof Haifa's Arab societyas mirrored by its architecture. The point of departure for this exhibition was a series of excursions outside the Haifa City Museum, to the surrounding streets of the German Colony. This context gave rise to an examination of the area's architectural forms and rich material culture by two Israeli-Jewish curators, who are not natives of the city.
