In the second semester for architecture students at the Bezalel Academy, our studio’s focus is on the process of turning concept into design. Students begin by identifying an event or condition that has specific private or public qualities with spatial implications.
Each student project isolates the qualities of their chosen condition and translates them into a designed intervention in a chosen location. Some students built their intervention, such as Maya and Roee who secretly constructed a hidden room within the studio as an investigation of how a distraction presents an opportunity for privacy. Other students developed a design through models, such as Adar and Moti who designed the ultimate abode for an extroverted character they named Mr. Public.
