Friday, May 19th, 14:00; Saturday, May 20th, 10:00  
The architect Assaf Asherov from Toam Architecture leads this tour about the transformation that Neve Sha`anan has undergone in the past decade. The neighborhood was founded in 1921 as a workers` cooperative. Its design by the architect Yosef Tischler was meant to resemble a seven-branched candelabrum (but was never completed). Tel Aviv`s first central bus station was built there in 1938, and the new bus station was dedicated nearby in 1993. The neighborhood went downhill over the years due to the considerable bus traffic, the departure of the original residents and the neglect of the buildings that followed. Encouraged by the Municipality, a change can be witnessed in recent years with the arrival of students who receive rent subsidies and the large scope of independent real estate initiatives that aim to rejuvenate the buildings. During the tour, Asherov will point out several buildings in the neighborhood which his firm designed.

Architects: Sharon-Idelson, 1949: Documentation and preservation architects: Mimar Naor Architecture & Conservation; Development architects: Alefbet Planners, Chief Architects: Assaf Kashtan and Gady Almog, 2016
An opportunity to learn about the history of agriculture in the early years of Israel. The Shalem Farm, which was established in 1949 at the initiative of Hazera Ltd., was run and operated by families who had previously lived on kibbutzim. They were experienced farmers who were recruited to supply quality seeds to other farms in the young country. The families lived in houses designed for them by the Sharon-Idelson architecture firm (Arieh Sharon and Benjamin Idelson), who also worked for the kibbutz movement. The two-family homes formed the nucleus of life on the farm and, at the time, were considered state-of-the-art due to their design as communal residences where the children slept at home and not in separate children`s houses.
After the documentation of the original buildings was completed, the farm was declared a historic landmark. The plan is to convert it into a cultural and culinary center in the future. The sessions will include a tour of the historic compound and a meeting with the architect Mimar Naor, who will talk about the preservation process. The tour participants will also meet Mrs. Edna Kapelushnik, who grew up on the farm and will share what she experienced as a child in one of the first families to live there.
