The Top of the Spiral
Meeting place: the light rail station on Davidka Square
Friday, October 19th, 10:00  
Echologic Tour
A tour at the Clal Center in downtown Jerusalem that will leave participants optimistic. In recent years, the building has been undergoing renewal processes and changes in land use designation. The tour will be led by Matan Israeli, one of the founders of the Muslala artists group that founded the Terrace – which is a combination between an urban rooftop park, art and sustainability studio, public space, and research lab dealing with sustainable urban life. The Clal Building was built in the 1970`s on the ruins of the former "Torah v`Avoda" school and was Jerusalem`s first indoor shopping mall – a novel concept at the time. The 15-story structure, designed by the architect Dan Eytan, was supposed to be the first of a series of hi-rise buildings in the city center, but the plan never materialized due to the criticism that the Clal Center generated.
The tour will recount the history of the building and talk about the activities that currently take place there. Most of those activities are held in the public space in order to create a new model in which an act of art that has a social dimension occurs in the urban space and has an impact on it.
Open tour. Reservations not required.
