Architect: Moshe Gerstel, 1940
Talpiot Market is considered one of the most important structures built in the International Style in Haifa, and was also called a wonder of the world by the local press in the 1940’s. It was built following an architectural competition (its design was chosen among close to 100 competing proposals) and, as soon as it was completed, became one of the symbols of the Hadar neighborhood and of Haifa, in general. But despite all its qualities, the structure with its splendid modernist space and transparent ceiling has been deserted for many decades. The tour, led by the architect Guy Arbel who is in charge of restoring the structure, will focus on its history and architectural features.
