Plan and interior design: Sorana Kfir
A penthouse apartment that was built under City Plan 38 (whose purpose is to make buildings earthquake-resistant and add housing units). The original tier-like design of the building was preserved in the new penthouse apartments. The existing constraint created an opportunity for an unusual blueprint based on two intertwined rings on different tiers of the building, in the middle of which – and in the third tier – the nucleus of the bedrooms is located. Consequently, the apartment enjoys multiple views of the landscape and separated living areas.

The vocal performance ensemble – "Abra" – in a work that uncovers acoustic features of intimacy and statism at Rabin Square. The work, created by Noa Haran, Faye Shapiro, Yifat Ziv and Hanan Ben-Simon, investigates the square which, on the one hand, is a venue where rallies and large-scale performances are held and has known countless historic moments and, the other, is a spot where individuals and families go for recreation. The performance creates a dialog between the physical presence of the vocalists who are actually found on the large square and their amplified voices. How can voices map out the square? How do speeches and songs that once were, and are no more, echo? Where are we and where is our voice? The performance lasts 30 minutes. Sound: Lars Sergel.
