?Prison with Invisible Walls?, Beit Egged, Haifa
A utopian project questioning the anachronistic tendency to distance prisoners from society, even when subject to rehabilitation. In the spirit of sustainable architecture, the project suggests re-inhabiting the abandoned Beit-Egged, one of Haifa?s most prominent complexes, as a prison without visible walls, thereby assimilating it within other urban functions. Manor Sisso, Alejandro Fajnerman, final project, Technion, Haifa, 2008 Tutors: Gabi Shwartz, Dan Eitan, Julia Omanski
Life in the Backyard, Ha?aliya Market
The project suggests renovating the neglected market, which has become a nuisance in south Tel Aviv. Contrary to the municipal plan that aims to erect a prestigious residential tower in its place, the project proposes a low-fabric multi-purpose structure, to act as an urban memory merging into its surroundings, socially and stylistically. Esty Ilgaev, Michael Peled, final project, Technion, Haifa, 2008 Tutors: Dan Eitan, Gabi Shwartz, Julia Grinkrug
