This short documentary follows AAUAnastas as they set out to build a massive stone vault in the ancient city of Jericho.

 

The project is a result of extensive research undertaken by the firm's research department SCALES, a grant from

Al-Maqdisi, and the guidance of professor Maurizio Brocato of the GSA Laboratoire in Paris.

 

The film looks into the inspiration behind Anastas' work, the technical developments of the project, and what it means to create such a structure in Palestine.
