Colorful Illustrations of Tel Aviv’s Eclectic Facades

27 Nahalat Binyamin St.. Image © Avner Gicelter

Take a virtual walk down the streets of Tel Aviv with these of the city’s facades by graphic designer Avner Gicelter. “My aim is to capture the unique essence of the building’s features in my illustrations, using a minimal set of graphic elements,” he explained. “After the building’s illustration is done I choose a background color out of a palette and a typeface that will reflect what I refer to as a Tel Avivian atmosphere.”

Gicelter first had the idea to capture the unique architecture in ’s city center when apartment hunting in 2013. “I got more interested in the building’s facade than in the apartments we were looking at,” he said. Since then he has illustrated over 70 different buildings.

Check out some of Gicelter’s illustrations after the break and visit his website to learn more. His illustrations are also available for purchase on Etsy.

Tel Aviv Museum Of Art Examines The International Circulation Of Prefab Concrete Panels

© Elad Sarig

Between 1945 and 1981 around 170 million prefabricated (prefab) residential units were constructed worldwide. Now, as part of a study undertaken by Pedro Alonso and of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile between 2012 and 2014, an exhibition at the Museum of Art features 28 large concrete panel systems from between 1931 and 1981. In so doing, it explores a transnational circulation of these objects of construction, ”weaving them into a historical collage of ambitions and short-lived enthusiasm for utopian dreams.”

This show, curated by Meira Yagid-Haimovici, is an attempt to reveal “how architecture and urbanism was charged with historical, social, and political narratives, and how the modernist vision promoted the fusion of aesthetics and politics.” The models, which are being exhibited as part of the Production Routes exhibition, seek to highlight the richness embodied in ‘generic’ architecture through the lens of prefab construction methods.
