Accessabile Tour
A walking tour of the Tel Aviv University campus, which features some of the most fascinating creations of local architecture (and a few works from abroad as well). The tour will be led by the architect Michael Jacobson – who writes about architecture on the Xnet website and on the "Rear Window" blog – and is also a M.A. student in the Department of Geography at Tel Aviv University. The tour will stop at some of the important buildings on campus (Beit Hatfutsot-The Museum of the Jewish People, the Cymbalista Center, Wolfson Building, and others), which together create a fabric comprising an open architecture museum.

Saturday, May 24th, 9:30  
House for reservation
A tour of this neighborhood, which was planned by the architects Robert Bennett and Yitzhak Perlstein, together with the landscape architects, Dan Zur and Lifa Yahalom. Their designs reflected modernist thinking and a socialist vision, explaining why Ramat Aviv was nicknamed "Tafnit" (which in Hebrew means turnabout) – due its distinctiveness compared to other tenement neighborhoods built in the 1950`s. The tour will be led by the architect Anat Chervinsky from the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality`s Northern Division, who drafted a policy document last year dealing with the neighborhood`s renewal. The tour will talk about the history of Ramat Aviv, its qualities and present condition, and the principles underlying its future renewal as formulated in the policy document, including the dilemmas, challenges and planning approaches to renewal that are based on textural preservation as a controlled development tool.
The architect Dan Price, a resident of the neighborhood, will accompany the tour.

Architect: Yehuda Magidovich, 1938
A visit at the synagogue designed by Magidovich for the Jewish congregation from Aden (a British Crown Colony in South Yemen). The front of this unassuming building doesn`t disclose the impressive and monumental space that one finds inside, which well illustrates Magidovich`s virtuosic architectural abilities, having created an elegant and rhythmic space using a network of exposed and imposing beams. 
The ground floor of the building currently houses the Aden Community Heritage House, which features a permanent exhibit of original photographs, artifacts, books, clothing and rare documents that recount the history of the Aden Jewish community.
