food_bread

!qwe! Each project in the studio the Political Ideas Dictionary, instructed by Dr Erez Golani Solomon and Liya Kohavi, describes one word by architectural means. In my case the word is food. !qwe! !qwe! screen A- The site has two centers: the gristmill and the water reservoir. Around them dwelling/baking houses are being built and around them wheat fields are being planted according to the quantity required. The process stops when there isn't enough rain and the water reservoir is depleted. !qwe! screen B- The houses take the place of the wheat fields but few fields remain empty. Later, those areas are used to mould and dry bricks and also function as distribution areas for the center gristmill flour. !qwe! screen C- The construction of the baking/dwelling house from isometric view. !qwe! screen D- The baking process dictates the design of the house which contains a baking oven, niches for storing flour and for leavening, water well and a table for kneading and eating. !qwe! screen E- On going section/elevation of the house.

A library in Dimona

!qwe! In this semester, Periphery Studio, instructed by Zvi Efrat and Ron Gross, chose Dimona as the city to research and design for. Soon, I found out that back in the 70's my grandfather, Jacques Hertz design and build a comprehensive high school at Dimona. This school and many others were designed after my grandfather took a study about designing schools while applying an industrial and modular construction approach. The study set the measurement of 120 cm as the basic module to design with and includes detailed specifications for designing schools. !qwe! Subsequently, I tried to adopt the modular approach and design with it a public library at Dimona, a building that is characterized by a certain degree of uncertainty about the events it can hold in addition to its books shelves. 11-22.
