After more than 15 years of a public battle waged by the neighborhood`s residents, the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality decided to revise the plans that had called for constructing houses on the lot and is developing an open garden in their place. For three years local residents have been holding various activities on the lot, thereby creating a garden reality in practice. Last year the residents and other relevant parties entered into a unique process aimed at devising a joint plan for the garden. As part of the Houses From Within weekend and in the format of a community-environmental-planning celebration, members of the lead team – comprised of neighborhood activists, Municipality representatives and the planners – will present the plan right before the works at the site begin. Tours will start every hour on the hour.

Architects: Pei, Cobb, Fried & Partners and Nir-Kotz Architects; Structure: the late Shemaya Ben Avraham; Preservation Architect: Amnon Bar Or, 2009
A tour of one of the most talked about towers recently built in the city, which serves as the headquarters of the First International Bank. The architectural approach that guided the planners of this 32-story building was to pay tribute to Rothschild Boulevard, enabling pedestrians to have an unobstructed view of the adjacent buildings designated for preservation: the Levin House (the former Russian Embassy), the Rivka Grinwald House and the Community Committee`s House. The triangle formed as a result of this unobstructed view was replicated throughout the height of the building as a repetitive geometric solution. The project also entailed renovation and preservation of the Rivka Grinwald House and the Community Committee`s House, which currently serves as the Bank`s main branch. This is one of many projects planned by the building`s architects, the New York firm of Pei, Cobb, Fried & Partners, who also designed the pyramid at the entrance to the Louvre in Paris and other famous edifices worldwide.
The tour will start on the Boulevard, pass through the lobby, stop to observe the works of the artist Nahum Tevet, continue from there up to the tower which also houses an impressive collection of Israeli art, and end with a view of the city from the roof veranda on the 15th floor.
