Architect: Ram Karmi, 1998
An unusual residential complex that was designed by the architect Ram Karmi, who won the Israel Prize in 2001. It constitutes an additional stage in a concept he tried to develop: residential life that is avant-garde, on the one hand, and residential life that remains anchored in tradition and connected with its surroundings, on the other hand. The tour, which will be led by the architect and researcher Oren On, will ‘wander around’ the spacious common areas, where participants will hear about the architectural language and style of the building. Issues pertaining to residential design will also be discussed: localness and climate, neighbor relations, functionality and efficiency, movement and material, perspectives and light.
