Architect: Al (Alfred) Mansfeld, the 1970s
A one-time opportunity to visit the home of Charlotte Bergman, one of the Israel Museum`s most important benefactors, located on the Museum campus and designed as part of it. The house was built especially for Mrs. Bergman further to an initiative by Jerusalem`s mythological mayor, Teddy Kollek. From an architectural perspective, the house is a translation of the Museum`s construction language into domestic uses. The interior design was influenced by Mrs. Bergman`s home in New York, and is replete with original works of art (by Braque, Chagall, Dufy, Moore, Picasso, Calder, Maillol, et al.) as well as furniture, artifacts and jewelry that Charlotte collected during her numerous trips around the world, some with her husband, Louis, who died in 1955. In its heyday, the house served as a literature and art salon that hosted intellectuals and men of the arts. Charlotte died in 2002 (at the age of 98), and the Museum continues to honor her wish that the house be preserved as it was – the home of a collector at the end of the 20th century – just like the period rooms in the Museum.

In the minds of most Israelis, International Style architecture is typically associated with Tel Aviv. But this tour, led by Shlomit Gross from the Bauhaus Center, will unveil the surprising wealth of Bauhaus homes that were built in Jerusalem during the 1920s and 1930s, primarily in the Rehavia neighborhood. The tour will focus on some of the solutions devised by the architects of the period in order to preserve the Bauhaus stylistic features: arched forms, narrow, horizontal windows, concrete awnings and flat roofs – which took into account the regulations governing the use of Jerusalem stone in local construction and the steep topography.
The tour will make reference to the book written by the German architect, Ulrich Knufinke, - entitled Bauhaus in Jerusalem – and include, among others, the following stops: the Schocken Library (architect: Erich Mendelsohn), the Bonem residence (architect: Leopold Krakauer) and the workers` quarters on Even Shaprut Street (architects: Avraham and Zippora Charniak). The tour lasts about an hour.

The architect Ari Cohen, who is in charge of devising the new urban plan for Rehavia which is currently under review for approval, will talk about the issues that the plan has had to address: the preservation of landscaping and architectural values and the rich vegetation, as opposed to the density requirements stipulated by municipal policy as a whole. He will also focus on some specific test cases.

Abandoned buildings are a well known phenomenon in many cities around the western world. Jerusalem also has many abandoned houses, some of which are very old and beautiful. The scores of abandoned buildings dispersed around the city constitute an aesthetic and safety hazard in their respective neighborhoods and are an inefficient use of the land. The tours, led by a team of guides from the "Awakening" Movement in Jerusalem that includes the architect, Uri Even-Haim, the photographer, Neta Ben-Ezra, and the social activist, Yuval Admon, will attempt to decipher the mystery behind the abandoned buildings (how each of them reached its current state) and present possible solutions to the problems which have been implemented in other cities in the world.
The tour, which lasts about two hours, will end with a photography exhibit of abandoned houses from within.
