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.

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.

Out of Sight Apartments
31 Kanfei Nesharim St., 2nd floor, the ultra-Orthodox branch of the Bezalel Academy
Thursday, October 18th, 17:30  
Accessabile Tour
An hour-long lecture by the architect Malki Kessler, during which she will talk about the final project she designed when studying Architecture at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. The project presents a revolutionary approach to the growing phenomenon of ultra-Orthodox squatters who have taken up residence in underground parking garages. When doing her project, Kessler focused on the Romema neighborhood in Jerusalem as a case study, where she surveyed hundreds of apartments in underground parking garages that ultra-Orthodox young adults have made for themselves so they can remain close to their families and community. Kessler proposes a vision for how to utilize Jerusalem`s underground spaces in order to solve the city`s housing shortage and asks that the opposition to the idea be reconsidered as it derives from powerful motives. Rather, she suggests that underground living be planned prudently using cutting-edge technologies, thereby enabling parking garage dwellers to enjoy a reasonably good quality of life that includes natural light and ventilation solutions.
Open lecture. Reservations not required.

House for reservation
Architect: Otto Hoffmann, 1945
Guided tours at an unusual apartment building in Kiryat Shmuel, which was designed by a Bauhaus school graduate in the 1940`s during the British Mandate period. The building features International Style elements such as a common inner courtyard and clean-line, rectangular windows, coupled with Jerusalem motifs such as exterior staircases and arches. The building was originally intended for families of British officers (who in the end never occupied it). In the summer of 1947, Beit Kadima hosted the UNSCOP Commission, which was a United Nations commission entrusted with examining solutions for the future status of Palestine. The recommendations made by that commission included the Partition Plan, which was ratified in the historic United Nations vote on November 29, 1947. During the War of Independence, the building was occupied by Jewish families and became a front line military post of the Haganah. The hour-long tours will be led by the tour guide Ruti Zuriel (Thursday), Maya Blum (Friday) and Devora Mizrahi (Saturday), all of whom live in the building. Tour participants will be able to go up on the roof, see the communal courtyards and the shared laundry room, and have a quick look at one of the apartments.
Advance reservations required; each of the 3 tours is limited to 35 participants.
