[PROJECT] Revealed the first images of the Al-Qasim Museum and Cultural Centre, Rameh_Israel
After some very interesting months of intensive work, we are proud to share with you the first images of the Samih al-Qasim museum and cultural center – ( Rameh-Galilee)
The project stands on the burying ground of the late Palestinian poet Samih Al-Qasim. (1939-2014), one of the foremost Palestinian and Arab poets and a major figure in the Arab world. It is meant to represent not only a place of remembrance but also a place of inspiration for the new generations. The building was conceived as a symbolic voyage into the poetry of Al-Qasim as well as the most appropriate answer to many different environmental, ecological and material issues of the site informed by a state of the art computational process capable to reveal many complex aspects of a delicate site turning them into generative design forces.
[EVENT] TEDx Enriqueta Llabres Relational Urban Models
In her talk, Enriqueta discusses the long preserving issues in urban planning where mismatch in private business interests and social values are present. By presenting examples from China, Ireland, and Israel, she explores possibilities relational urban models, the combination models, community feedback incorporating frameworks and simulations, can open in modern urban design aligning interests, values and ensuring sustainable use of natural resources and environments. Enriqueta Llabres is an architect, researcher, designer and social scientist from Tenerife, Spain. Her work crosses scales and disciplines, from Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design and Local Development. At the core of her professional career is the interest in how digital technologies are influencing the design culture at the urban scale. She developed Relational Urban Models, digital interfaces for urban master-planning using web based technologies.READ MORE
