104 And They Built City Blocks

Meeting place: HaLevanon Garden on Avraham Yaari St., Gilo

A tour with the architect and architecture researcher, Michael Jacobson, at three of the most unusual residential compounds designed in Israel, all of which are next to the Gilo neighborhood. The city blocks were designed in the 1970’s by the architects Ram Karmi, Arieh and Eldar Sharon (whose compound is scheduled to be torn down), and Moshe Lufenfeld and Giora Gemerman (whose compound includes one of the longest internal streets ever paved in the country). The 90-minute tour will describe the planning principles and values underlying the compounds, while examining whether they stand the test of time. Rachel Netzer, the community urban planner who works with the neighborhood, will also be joining the tour.
