Complex Building Studio - NEVE OFER NEIGHBORHOOD
Arch. Ramy Gil, Arch. Tzvi Harel
As part of Tel Aviv's attempt to modernise in the late 60's, it brought American influence to its built environment. This studio focused on the "Hotel Block" in Tel Aviv (Historic Mansheya), a large series of hotels and office buildings standing as large relics between the city and its sea, leaving behind only technical structures that are blocking Neve Tzedek Neighborhood.
The goal was to implement architectural solutions to revive this urban area by acting as a parasite, using the existing structures to our advantage in the new design, integrating it in the surroundings. The design should offer a programme allowing it to utilize those left over spaces and use their functions.
