 Encounters- Givatayim Theater


 ENCOUNTERS: Israeli Architecture
The building was awarded the Rechter Prize in 1996.


Architects: Bracha Chyutin, Dr. Michael Chyutin

This deconstructivist building refers through its form, material, and color to the modernist architecture of Tel Aviv in the 1930's.

A three-dimensional composition of three volumes which function according to their distinct programmatic use. The sinking stone-clad cube contains the theater hall; the curving central space contains a multipurpose foyer; and the rectangular floating volume contains recreational rooms and a youth hostel. The layout creates an entry plaza at the main facade while framing a public garden behind.
