Arad: An Experimental TownArchitect Dr. Hadas Shadar in conversation with artist Natalia Zourabova Israeli Art
The talk will deal with the unique planning of Arad, a town that was built as an amendment to the towns that were planned, built, and inhabited by the country before its establishment, though, in practice, it embodied modern international and urban concepts. These ideas were globally spread in a book that compiled plans for a new British town that was never actually built. But Arad, which was designed by its inspiration, came to life.
Architect Prof. Hadas Shadar, is a researcher of town planning and brutalism in Israel. She is a senior lecturer at the Technion and the Wizo Haifa Academic Center, where she is also the head department of the master’s program. She seeks to spread the uniqueness of Israeli planning, specifically spaces that are perceived as abandoned and alienated. Her fourth book “Arad: An Experimental Town” combines history and art (such as that of Natalia Zourabova).
