LocationBe'er Sheva, Israel
Chyutin Architects have won a competition to design a new campus for the Ben Gurion University in Israel. Planned for a 30 hectare site in Beer Sheva, the 300,000 square meter campus will double the University’s existing facilities, both of which will be connected. Once complete, the new campus will include a welcoming public square with commercial and cultural facilities, as well as students dormitories, a congress center, academic and research facilities, sports facilities and more.
The winning proposal for a new iconic pedestrian footbridge in the city of Be’er Sheva by Bar Orian Architects is a symbol of the current city’s development. The proposal creates a connection between the university and the future Hi-Tech industrial zone. The perforated steel cladding provides a shaded yet well ventilated space to shield the pedestrians from the harsh desert climate. More images and project description after the break.
