David Kroyanker is a prominent Israeli architect and architectural historian in Jerusalem, who has contributed greatly to the visual documentation and illustration of Jerusalem’s various architecture. This book is a collection of his years of documentation, illustrating and describing the various architecture and urban environment present in the city, ranging from the heritages of the old city to the institutional architecture of various western powers; from the local vernacular to the modern garden neighborhoods. This book is mostly an objective overview of Jerusalem architecture, though it is important to take note the Jewish and Zionist background of the author himself, which puts his attention more on Jewish architecture than that of the Arabians.
