Mar 2010 / First House ZeZeZe Gallery
Works by young Israeli architects // ZEZEZE Gallery // Tel Aviv Harbour
First House - Young Architects and Designers Building in Israel showcases the works of close to 100 architects and designers under the age of 40 working in Israel. The 154 projects presented consist of built projects or projects in various stages of construction, as well as winning proposals in architectural competitions. Merriam-Webster's dictionary defines young as 'being in the first or an early stage of life, growth, or development'. Yet, while all of the participants in this exhibition belong to a certain age group, the works presented range from first projects to the works of designers and practices with more than a decade of practical experience. The variety in projects, programs, aesthetic and design agendas represent various approaches towards shaping our built environment. And more importantly, they represent an perception of design which is by no means 'young'.
