The Faculty of Interior Architecture invites you to the conference:

Between Space, Materiality and Technology

A quick glance through the history of architecture reveals moments where inventions of great engineering meet sublime architecture. The Pantheon in Rome – as a beautiful piece of architecture embedded with technology, or the beauty of gothic spaces -- sacred, full of light, based on the technology of the flying buttresses. Later in the 20th century, the Dom-Ino House allowed the open plan and the free elevation.

Architecture is created between space, materiality and technology. We always ask ourselves - how should we build this project? What is the right tectonics of the building and its technology? How can we find the building method or technology that will be an integral part of the architectural idea? We are in search of a technology that comes not only to serve the idea but to be part of it.

Three of their projects will demonstrate this approach: Mount Herzl memorial, the CheckPoint Building for Computer Science at TAU and the Beit Halochem Rehabilitation Center.
