“Short Sentences That Refuse to Get Old”
Ada Karmi-Melamede is one of the voices that can be heard on the audio app of the shortly reopened Liebling House in Tel Aviv. Her father Dov Karmi is the architect of the building. An inspirational conversation about freedom of thought, architecture and rituals of a creative family.
How Bauhaus came to Palestine
Arieh Sharon, the father of Israeli architecture, trained his gifted students at Bauhaus. He and his colleagues, Genia Averbuch, Zeev Rechter and Dov Karmi, managed an unusual balancing act in the 1930‘s during the construction of the White City in Tel Aviv. Never again would the longing for a time long begone be expressed in such a modern way in the future.
Migration of the Material
Under the auspices of Israel’s Ambassador to Germany, the third Triennial of Modernism will take place in October 2019. For the centenary year, the event at all three historical Bauhaus locations will take on a special character. While Weimar and Berlin will focus on the school’s vision and global legacy, Dessau will examine a group of themes revolving around architecture and materials – also with a view to the White City in Tel Aviv.
