The 11th annual Open House Tel Aviv, May 18-20, will showcase Tel Aviv’s diverse architectural styles and allow the public to tour places to which they don’t ordinarily have access, at no charge.
This year, the popular urban festival of architecture will highlight Tel Aviv’s diverse communities and the latest trends in design and home renovation.
Among the 146 houses, projects, municipal buildings and private offices on the itinerary are:
The Platform, a new municipality-sponsored entrepreneurship center scheduled to open later this year next to the platforms of the old Central Bus Station in the Neve Sha`anan neighborhood. The space will serve as an international accelerator program for startups addressing urban challenges.
CityTree at Bialik Square in the heart of downtown Tel Aviv. The small community of environmental visionaries who live communally in this Bauhaus-style apartment grow edible plants, manufacture cleaning agents and cosmetics, make compost and offer workshops to the public.
Kuchinate, an industrial space designed in the 1960s as an employment center, now serving as a hub for artists and designers wo are mainly women and refugees from Africa.
Vanishing Synagogues, a tour through old synagogues that tells the stories of their decline, as well as poses questions about how these spaces can be utilized to serve contemporary Jewish culture.
Open House Tel Aviv is part of the Open House World Wide Organization, which invites residents and visitors to get to know the most interesting houses and buildings that form the landscapes of their cities.
