The Global Alliance for Urban Crises is a global, multi-disciplinary and collaborative community of practice. It is a ‘network of networks’ working to prevent, prepare for and effectively respond to humanitarian crises in urban settings.
The Foundation for Achieving Seamless Territory is an architectural think-tank that works on the intersection between architecture, planning, and human rights. FAST seeks to improve the quality of the built environment and people's livelihoods in conflict-affected regions. Our projects include the award-winning book 'Atlas of the Conflict: Israel-Palestine,' 'Village. One Land Two Systems and Platform Paradise,' the long-term collaborative research project on the legacy of UN missions with the Center on International Cooperation at NYU and 'BLUE: Architecture of UN Peacekeeping Missions,' the 2016 Dutch entry to the Venice Architecture Biennale. FAST is led by Malkit Shoshan.
