Zvi Hecker Memory Is The Soil Of Architecture

Introduction by:

Hecker discusses some of his earlier work. He comments on the importance of overcoming the sterility of a solitary idea which will not lead to other ideas. Hecker presents a design for housing and a commercial center in Tel Aviv which he started by integrating the geometry of the Gozo Citadel in Ferrara and continued by created geometries derived from the original citadel form. Hecker presents several projects that are organized as a spiral. Some have a structural core at the center for taller structures, and others have a courtyard at the center for lower structures. Hecker shows a series of images of completed spiral houses. He compares their working drawings to Piranesi’s prisons. Hecker describes a project for a Jewish cultural center in Duisburg, Germany as the last of the spiral designs. The building extends into the surrounding park, allowing visitors to pass through parts of the building without entering. Hecker wanted his design for the Palmach Museum of History in Tel-Aviv, to “respect the soil,” and so it left much of the site intact, including the slope of the street and the existing trees.

Hak Sik Son presents a mixed-use project with multiple sources of funding and lending. The building is situated on a very tight site and employs a roof terrace for open space in addition to small balconies for residential units. He discusses the design problem of maximizing units allowed on the site. Hak Sik Son then presents an apartment project in Korea to house scientists on a research campus. The overall space would include 500 units, but a variety of types, from high rise to bungalow. The project includes extensive landscaping to create public spaces. He continues with several additional large scale development planning proposals.
