The architecture of #Palestine during the British Mandate

New ‘Social Construction’ exhibit at the Israel Museum explores the European influence on the evolution of Israel’s modernist visual heritage.

“Social Construction,” a new exhibit at the #Israel Museum in #Jerusalem running through December 31, 2016, puts a spotlight on the “white architecture” that early 20th century European modernists imported to pre-state Palestine – and the social values this style reflects.

Curator Oren Sagiv gathered roughly 40 analytical and interpretive drawings together with more than 60 archival photographs of some of the iconic architectural projects built between 1930 and 1940 during the time of the British Mandate.

Of course, Tel Aviv is nicknamed the White City for its unrivalled abundance of these simple white, rounded buildings designed in what is known as the Bauhaus or International style. But they’re found in large numbers also in Jerusalem and #Haifa.

“Social Construction” shows how the development of these urban centers “emerged from the influence of international modernism while forming a unique architectural language inspired by the ambitions to establish a new state and to create a new social order,” according to the museum.

“The influx of immigration to Palestine following the Russian Revolution of 1905 and the concurrent political upheavals in eastern Europe brought a generation of architects who embraced modernism as a new beginning.”

Located in the museum’s new Palevsky Design Pavilion, “Social Construction” draws on the research of Israeli architects Ada Karmi-Melamede and Dan Price, co-authors of Architecture in Palestine During the British mandate, 1917-1948. An English translation of the book was published as a companion to the exhibition.

First of all, thank you so much for following me! It really means a lot to me :3
This set includes a lot of Oasis Springs debug items: garden plots, desert plants, 5 shell houses and plenty of shell landmark buildings like a casino or a dinner. Hope you enjoy it!
Some of the objects have less “crisp” textures than the others, because they either have a smaller texture file originally or because i couldn’t get rid of weird artifacts on .dds files so i had to convert them to .png to get rid of them. If anyone has a better solution to this problem i’d love to hear it!

PLEASE REDOWNLOAD IF YOU DOWNLOADED THIS GIFT BEFORE 16/07/2016. (Deco\Misc and General\Misc version)
