2006 Bezalel University, Jeruzalem, Israel
A monument of Jerusalem, a huge base, an impending silent presence, a shining metal and glass cover. An abstract and constant surface below which light penetrates, illuminating creative thoughts going into the creativity subconscious.
We called it archeological because it’s a square developed on a steep slope: it connects the cathedral level with the Russian Mission Building level. It sections the school in its parts, so as they come out as crystal jewels: the studios, the library, the canteen, the coffee bar and the shop for students work.
The result is a building introvert as an artist, a precious tough skin, whose bright beams let perceive a soul revealing itself full of light, fantasy and astonishing shapes.
