TREEHOUSE IN ISRAEL: THE YOUTH WING FOR ART EDUCATION ENTRANCE COURTYARD


Architects Ifat Finkelman and Deborah Warschawski have conceived this projects (the renewal of the Art Education Entrance Courtyard of the Israel Museum), which combines a program open to interpretation by its users with a clearly defined context.
The existing pine tree was the focus of the project, a physical anchor of the overall design concept. As a tribute to the childhood collective memory of a tree house, the architects have positioned high up in the tilted trunk, a small roofed structure where children can hide and overlook the meticulous surroundings of the museum.
