The project presents a school located between two fundamentally different towns – financially, socially, and spatially – which offers an intriguing learning environment and a spatial setting for profound connections between children from both communities.
Tel Aviv University
The proposed educational institution strives to demonstrate the magic of childhood and the myth of adolescence to its students. The school, which features a boarding school, is located on and around the tip of the land barrier established in 2003 between Jisr az-Zarqa on the North and Caesarea to the South, facing the Mediterranean Sea. The institution aspires to provide a comprehensive experience of life, learning and being, and to connect students to themselves, their friends, and the environment. The school is tailored to its unique location between the two towns – it overlooks them and addresses the conflicted setting that surrounds it, as well as the landscape features. Concurrently, it aspires to create a world for its students which is distinct from the socio-political reality, and to provide a childhood experience that nurtures creativity, curiosity, and imagination. Thus, the institution offers a possible framework for a respectful meeting between children from both towns which will lay the groundwork for a profound change in the relationship between the two communities.
