David Kroyanker, Jerusalem Architecture
Research, Publications and Preservation
Architect and Town Planner David Kroyanker has specialized since the beginning of his professional career, in 1969, in preservation and revitalization of historic neighbourhoods and buildings. He researched and documented the various periods and styles of Jerusalem's urban-architectural heritage, within and outside the Old City walls. More than thirty books (mostly in Hebrew) as well as numerous articles have made Kroyanker the best known expert in his field. His pioneering works have helped raise public awareness to the importance of historic-architectural preservation and have created an extensive and solid cultural base of detailed knowledge for future generations.
Kroyanker is deeply involved in his native city as a leading figure in various public controversies in the preservation and renewal of neighbourhoods and buildings of architectural and historic significance. Among his many awards is the Teddy Kollek Life Achievement Award, presented to him at the Knesset in 2006, and Yakir Yerushalaim ("Worthy Citizen of Jerusalem") in 2010.
