The Riwaq Centre for Architectural Conservation, headquartered in Ramallah, Palestine, for more than two decades has used architecture to restore more than 100 historic sites in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.  Riwaq sees architectural restoration as a social and economic incubator; the projects it facilitates serve the public, create jobs, and strengthen community identity.  In 2012, Riwaq won the Curry Stone Design Prize for designers addressing critical social needs.
