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.
