Amos Goldreich's comments
And more from the AEC industry
You don’t need to work long hours if you use your time correctly and stick to your default diary. Less social media, less email and less procrastinating = Deep Work.
A great loss. Such an inspiring person.
Congratulation to the winners. The AJ! there were 47 entries and 14 shortlisted schemes. Could you please list them?
The reality is that this pledge will go unnoticed and will not achieve its goals. First of all the timing is wrong. There are elections in Israel next month and I think that whether Jarvis Cocker will preform or not is the last thing on people's mind at the moment. The other issue is the list. With all due respect to my fellow architects, It is rather dull. The reason why the campaign 'sun city' was a success was that it was a global pledge with very well known artists. I myself bought the record that came out. The other reason is that you can not escape the labelling of antisemitic or self hating Jew when you criticise Israel. I can't explain why it is such but that's the fundamental reason why it will fail. No successful artist will want to be labeled as such. Only direct dialogue with support from the global community will bring everlasting peace to the region. If Netanyahu wins again we can all kiss this wish goodbye.
Well said Dan
Good decision by the RIBA president. Now the RIBA can concentrate on it's objectives:
"...the general advancement of Civil Architecture, and for promoting and facilitating the acquirement of the knowledge of the various arts and sciences connected therewith..."
It has been 15 years since a UK architect designed the pavilion! WHY? How about a little known UK practice!
I feel compelled too Lior and Yaron:
"RIBA should put the same amount of energy to promote change within our outdated and dysfunction planning system in the UK instead of fighting foreign wars it does not understand and can't possibly win".
