Touring Brutalist Tel-Aviv: Tel-Aviv Law Court, 1965 and Law Court tower, 2016

27 June 2020

16:00 -17:30

ReCA invites you to explore brutalist buildings in Tel-aviv in three guided virtual tours.
The nascence of the state of Israel in 1948 coincides with the Late-Modernism and Brutalism in Architecture. Most of the public structures built during the 1950s and 1960s manifest brutalist Architecture as a promoter of democracy, modesty, pluralism, and integrity, both in material and in form. ReCA’s team, led by founder Arch. Amnon Rechter and Curator Arch. Dana Gordon will conduct three virtual guided tours in which we will explore the term ‘power’ and its relation to Architecture, Urbanism, and ‘The State’. We will examine three iconic buildings planned by Rechter Architects in Tel-Aviv and their adjacent urban context.

Tel Aviv Law Court was designed and built in the early 1960s. Its architectural concept expresses values of democracy through civil equality and direct and concrete simplicity. In 2016, the Court Tower was inaugurated. It corresponds in contemporary architectural language to the original structure and generates a fascinating dialogue about the ability of architecture to express social values and mechanisms of power over 50 years.
