Accessabile Tour
Architects: the Boston-based firm Kallmann McKinnell & Wood (the architect, Michael McKinnell) and the local firm A. Lerman Architects (the architect, Tammy Yaniv), 2016
An hour-long tour led by Professor Israel Yuval, the school`s academic director, and the architect, Tammy Yaniv, at this new and much talked about building on the Mount Scopus campus. The 4,600 m² building caters to outstanding students and senior researchers.
The architectural concept underlying the building reflects its sensitive location on the seam dividing East and West Jerusalem, Jews and Arabs, and the wasteland and populated areas. This concept was translated into an architectural language of transparency and multiple perspectives on the landscape. The entrance is via a bridge that connects the Botanical Garden with the fifth and top floor of the building, which is designed like a transparent pavilion. From its northeastern corner that is made of glass, there is a spectacular view of the Judean Desert, Moab Mountains and village of Issawiya.
The building`s American architect, Michael McKinnell, who was chosen by the donor Morton Mandel, also designed Boston City Hall, which served as inspiration for the Bank of Israel in Jerusalem.

Architect: Martin Ivanovich Eppinger, 1872
An opportunity to become acquainted with another important building that illustrates the foothold that the Russians had in the city – the Holy Trinity Cathedral. It was built by the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society (which was active in Jerusalem in the Ottoman period) as a local religious center for the large waves of Christian pilgrims who came to the city in those days and was primarily intended for those pilgrims who stayed at the inns in the Russian Compound. After World War I and the end of the Czar`s rule in Russia, the pilgrims stopped coming to Jerusalem and the church was used only by a handful of monks. Following the establishment of the State of Israel, the church became active again and was also renovated.
Built of white stone, the church has 8 bell towers and domes, all with crosses on top (the domes were painted green for years, but are now covered with copper). The cathedral structure features Renaissance elements such as stone decorations and splendid frescoes that depict scenes associated with Russian Orthodox traditions.

Jerusalem Stone 2.0
The Urban Design Center -The Model House, Safra Square, Building 1, Floor 0
Thursday, October 18th, 19:30  
House for reservationAccessabile Tour
An event where questions relating to building with Jerusalem stone will raised and discussed: Does the stone still reflect the spirit of the place? And how should building with Jerusalem stone be regarded today, in a city that is growing and changing quickly and is likely to get even `taller` in the future?
These questions were at the core of a comprehensive research study conducted by the Program in Urban Design at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and the Urban Design Center, which in recent years has operated under Jerusalem`s City Architect. The research had a practical aim: to propose tools for thinking differently about Jerusalem stone and the policy pertaining to it use. This is also the first time that the work done by the researchers will be presented in its entirety to the general public, including all its urban, planning, cultural and environmental aspects. Following the presentation, there will be a discussion about the various insights emerging from the research as well as possible futures for Jerusalem`s urban landscapes - and the role the stone plays in them.
Speakers: Dr. Arch. Els Verbakel, the Head of the Graduate Program in Urban Design at Bezalel, Arch. Ytav Boushira, DY-Common Planning, and Arch. Ori Scialom – Stability Studio.
Open discussion. Reservations not required.

Colonial Jerusalem
Meeting place: the plaza next to the entrance to Jaffa Gate
Friday, October 19th, 14:00  
House for reservation
The policy governing building with Jerusalem stone is a direct outcome of how the British viewed Jerusalem, and the Old City in particular. Their way of thinking continues to dictate the city`s development and affects its built landscape. The origins of that view date back to a period that lasted about thirty years, during which Jerusalem was under the British Mandate. At the time, Britain ruled around one-third of the world and scores of cities, new and old alike, were planned and built. The way that the British planned Jerusalem was influenced by their experience as a global colonial power and their perception of Jerusalem as a holy city, ancient and traditional. The tour will discuss these impacts on Jerusalem, then and now. This includes understanding how the concept of a `colonial city` was reconciled with Jerusalem`s standing as the Holy City and what connection it had with the Arts and Crafts movement and the popular `garden city` town plan. Finally, the tour will examine how all these issues are still articulated in the plans for Jerusalem until this very day. The focus will be on the vicinity of Jaffa Gate and along the Old City walls and will review the changes that have occurred along a major thoroughfare in the city – Derech Hevron. The tour will end at the Jerusalem House of Quality.
Open tour. Reservations not required.
