Dr. Roy Brand, Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem. Workshop an der Kunsthochschule Kassel.
'A three day workshop with lectures, discussion and exercises on the subject of Modernist and Contemporary Architecture. We will begin by exploring the tradition of Bauhaus and its implementation in Israel from the establishment of the state in 1948 till today. In this context we will develop the concept of the UrbUrb, an amalgamation of Urban and Suburban, which characterizes most residential construction in Israel, and indeed a lot of modern construction in other parts of the world. In the second part, the participants will explore UrbUrb neighborhoods and buildings in different settings — the design, the social-economic structure, and the forms of life that it fosters and creates. In the third meeting, we will speak about another type of city—a temporally layered one which stands in contrast to the ready-made (or planned and constructed) modern city. I will use Jerusalem as an example, but there could be many others as well and in the final part we will try to extend the notion of a chronopolis (city of time) to other spatio-temporal sites.`(Roy Brandt)
