Published on

The Azrieli Award acknowledges and supports creativity, originality and architectural quality among students of architecture in Israel. Every year, the five schools of architecture in Israel submit three students/groups of students for the Award for an architectural project, designed during their studies. Out of the 15 contestants, four recent graduates from the Department of Architecture won first and third places.

The first place went to Nissim Carlos Kazantini and Maya Schuldenfrei for their project 'Tat-Aviv', which focuses on the urban challenges - density and transportation - facing the city of Tel Aviv and providing solutions for the utilization of the underground of the new urban fabric. The third place went to the graduates Sharona Cramer and Yotam Oron for their project 'Dead Space’, which examines the efficiency of burial grounds in Israel and offers an alternative solution to traditional burial, which provides a solution to the problem of overcrowding and unused areas. Both projects were led by the architects Barak Pelman, Ori Scialom and Edith Kofsky.
