...IN ORDER TO KEEP OUR CITIES ALIVE WE NEED THE POPLE TO BE OUT THERE..

GERMAN BAHAMON I cannot ignore the fact that we are going through an hostorical moment in our lifetime. The actual situation related with the COVID-19, is forcing us to be isolated, and removing people from different world-wide busy spaces like Times Square, fontana di trevi or Shibuya crossing. During this pandemia we realise that we can enjoy more being outside than inside, socializing than being isolated, showing us the real value of the Public Space over the Private Space.

A D D R E S S

A new era is ahead, and architects must be prepared for this, learning and understanding more the nature of human beings.

150 West 56th Street, Apt 4502 New York, NY - Now I understand even more, that in order to keep our cities alive we need the people to be out there.-

AS THE PLATFORM

Hatikva and Ezra are rich in diversity and culture. Historically underinvested and marginalized communities, these neighborhoods struggle today to accept an influx of migrant workers and asylum seekers.

LOCAL THREATS & OPPORTUNITIES Segregation Parcelization vs real State Ezra

Under Land law of Israel, the “Musah” is a joint land ownership where one portion of land can be owned by different families. This an opportunity for better social cohesion, collective sharingand enable resistance against the greedby developers.

parcels of land which lack a defined individual allotment. Subsequently, development pressures are threatening the uniqueness of these neighborhoods, with developers looking to take advantage of cheaper land and minimal planning regulations.

Consensus Building Through a Bottom-Up Approach

MUŞAH GEOMETRIES

We propose to establish a development trust with a bottom-up approach. This creates an opportunity to build consensus, collaborate, design and implement projects that enable local stewardship for a new way of life for local residents. The sharing mechanisms of the muşah concept integrates water-sensitive interventions and the new housing typologies that allow local communities to connect and thrive.

UNDERSTANDING THE LOCAL FLOODPLAIN Analysis of Existing Stormwater Runoff

A Systematic Approach to Make Water Work for Local Benefit

Hatikva and Ezra are located in the lowest points of southern Tel Aviv, where stormwater travels through the watershed to reach the Ayalon River. The flooding situation is amplified in this area due to poor drainage infrastructure and several

CARBON SEQUESTRATION REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE Regenerative Agriculture works with nature. It’s practices rebuild soil, which leads to increased carbon storage, less need for nitrogen and herbicides, a reduction in the likelihood of flooding, less erosion and healthier water systems, as well as healthier food.

CREATING A PATH A unique spatial system has been created in the form of an arterial route that will be connected with adjacent paddocks and harvested cropland through easements, where farmers will be able to share each others land and develop social networks. Livestock will be moved and rotated through the trail and connected paddocks, to regenerate the land and sequester carbon.
