Description

This document is part of a year-long study undertaken by Studio Sergison at the Accademia di Architettura di Mendrisio exploring Modernism as a form of contemporary vernacular.

The city of Tel Aviv was chosen as the setting for the first part of this study for its remarkable urban fabric. The ‘White City’, which was designated as a world heritage site by UNESCO in 2004, boasts one of the world’s finest collections of buildings from the early period of the Modern Movement.

Our work considered the status of the city’s urban fabric and the contradictions implicit in the preservation of the urban legacy of a movement that had itself advocated a break with the past.

As an economically dynamic city with a growing population, Tel Aviv needs to consider the potential for densification and rebuilding within its existing urban fabric, but this requires difficult forces to be reconciled.

The students worked on a number of sites that are under great pressure to be developed and studied building proposals that were deemed appropriate and realistic. The sum of these works is an attempt to define a conceptual framework of our studies and offer a positive contribution by addressing the difficulties and dilemmas the city faces today.
