Caesarea Heights World Monument
Project Title
Caesarea Heights World Monument
The Caesarea World Monument involved building a World Study Center with the development of a master plan to restore and reconstruct the ancient city of Caesarea Maritima on the Sea. The entire project was divided into six phases, and Safdie's involvement was limited to the first two phases: the restoration of the Cardo Maximus, a 0.4 km pedestrian walkway extending from the amphitheatre to the moat of the Crusader Fortress; and the construction of the World Study Center Building, providing facilities for archaeological research and study, as well as for preservation and display of excavated material.
