Competition proposal for a public square

Client: The Municipality of Jerusalem and the Israel Association of United Architects and Urban Planners
Design team: Rami Bar-Maor, Yael Bar-Maor
Date: December 2008

The proposed public square is designed as a multifunctional area, open to all, in contrast to the fenced functions, that dominate the surrounding hills. The square sits in a topographic saddle, between two hills: on the south – the museums area, on the north – The Knesset (the Israeli Parliament). The total area of the square is 7 acres, thus it can host a large crowd for a wide variety of activities, exhibitions or shows.
