Abstract: During the past century, the city of Jerusalem expanded from 1km recently. The city presents an open book in urban 2 more than 126 km2 in 2005 and 164 km planning practice starting with the Ottoman time through the British Mandate and ending with the Israeli occupation. Planners during different regimes added several layers to the original fabric in attempts to transform the city into ‘modern’ mosaic/collage. In this study, historical plans were analyzed; sequential plans were gathered and stratified in order to show how urban context was deformed and fragmented through unilateral planning.
