The project deals with the relationship between architecture and cinema through the experience of motion and point of view. This relationship offers an innovative alternative to structure preservation by accentuating the confluence between old and new worlds.

‘Transition’ came to life by writing a script that led the planning process, with a story about the intersection of two opposing worlds relating to the history of Tel Aviv-Jaffa: preservation and mummification vs. the creative-destruction of capitalism. These two worlds meet in a specific communal area between the preserved Neve Tzedek neighborhood and the continuously-developing Tel Aviv central business district. The project will serve as an alternative public ‘Transition’ space bridging two separate urban entities.

The vision of this project is to create a municipal cultural center, ‘the new Gymnasium’, providing an architectural and conceptual foundation at the base of Rothschild Boulevard. I chose to deal with the ‘Tachkemoni’ School in the dialogue between the original plan and reuse that will connect East and West. The project proposes a multi-dimensional public space that utilizes motion and point of view to create encounters of old/new, interior/exterior, public areas/public structures, and Neve Tzedek/Central Business District.
