‘While We Wait’ is a stunning sculptural installation, constructed by quarried Palestinian stone in a tall, vertical structure of interlocking stone pieces. Crafted via a combination of ancient and cutting-edge technologies, the sculpture is destined to be installed permanently in the landscape that inspired it - the Cremisan Valley close to Bethlehem, Palestine. We talk to the designers and to curator, the V&A’s Salma Tuqan, about the work and the fascinating story behind it.

While We Wait was commissioned by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. It was on show at Concrete in Alserkal Avenue from 5 November to 18 November.
