  • The plan was to was to excavate a hilltop and build the structure on the concave surface, where its form would follow the contours of the former landscape, making it a part of the hill.

  • Paul planned over more than 300 units to be placed in a series of concrete vaults, lying on a concrete frame, clad in local stone.

  • The Third Arab–Israeli War stopped the project and it remains unbuilt.
