Centrifuge: TAU's Azrieli School of Architecture 2015 Graduate Exhibition
The 2015 graduating class of Tel Aviv University’s David Azrieli School of Architecture have their work on display at the school’s annual exhibition in Tel Aviv. This year’s show, titled Centrifuge, opened with a ceremony attended by Tel Aviv Mayor Mr. Ron Huldai, TAU President Joseph Klafter, Dean of TAU’s Yolanda and David Katz Faculty of the Arts Prof. Zvika Serper and Azrieli Foundation Israel CEO Ms. Offi Zisser.
The Azrieli School is a national trendsetter for design, academic research, and civic and environmental consciousness, and its reputation for innovation is such that the students’ annual final projects exhibition has become a national event.
The works of architectural design will be on display in five buildings at Tel Aviv’s Bialik complex, the old City Hall square, until the end of the month, and samples of the students’ work can be seen online here.
Since its establishment in 1993, the Azrieli School has provided the highest level of architectural training to over 900 alumni. Today, these alumni fill leading positions throughout the architectural world – both in the public service sphere working in local councils and municipalities, and in prestigious private firms.
The School’s multidisciplinary approach ensures that courses integrate technological, functional and aesthetic aspects of architecture, together with basic engineering and a strong grounding in the arts, humanities and social sciences. This approach imparts students with both the vision and skills to design structures that are not merely functional, but that exhibit a deep understanding of the surrounding cultural environment.
