On My Watch: Traditional Houses of Bukhara's Old Jewish Mahallah
Home to an isolated part of the Jewish Diaspora for over two millennia, the Uzbek city of Bukhara is characterized by its traditional houses–exceptional representations of the woodworking craft developed by Bukharian Jews over centuries.
Join us on September 30 for an online event on how World Monuments Fund's (WMF) project in Bukhara is safeguarding these unique examples of vernacular architecture, which are featured on the 2020 World Monuments Watch. The event will take place in partnership with the European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage and in collaboration with the International Institute for Central Asian Studies.
WMF's work at this site was made possible, in part, by support from the David Berg Foundation and Tianaderrah Foundation / Nellie and Robert Gipson.
This event is hosted with the New York and UK Chapters of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and is pending AIA CES approval.
