Temporary Building in Front of the Tel Aviv University (TAU)

Tel Aviv

2014 – 2019

In cooperation with zukunftsgeraeusche GbR, the Bildungsverein Bautechnik has been conducting an exchange project with Israel since 2014, which was funded by the DBU (Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt). The so-called IGSBE project (Israeli German Sustainable Building Education) was realised in Berlin and Tel Aviv, with the overarching thematic focus on intercultural exchange and sustainable building.

Young trainees and students of architecture and civil engineering from Germany and Israel worked together on the following topics

– sustainable building,

– the architectural heritage of the two countries and

– the common heritage of modern architecture and the Bauhaus ideas for a mutual intercultural and professional exchange.

The overarching focal points were energy and resource conservation, simple and climate-friendly building, including sustainable solutions for heat and cold protection, building with reusable and regionally available materials, and the common heritage of modern architecture and Bauhaus ideas in Germany and Israel.


The results were presented in an exhibition on 3 April 2017 at the „Bauhaus reuse“. In December 2019, another exhibition „Triennale der Moderne“ took place in the atrium of the Technische Universit√§t Berlin.
