The Exhibition is a joint venture of the Faculty of Architecture of WIZO Haifa School of Design and Education and the Faculty of Architecture of Ljubljana University which resulted in models of conceptual structures of future embassies.
- What is an Embassy?
- What is the difference between symbolic meaning and representation in reference to the ‘local’?
- How to reconcile the need for protection and security with the wish for openness and transparency?
- Is architecture supposed to reflect the relations between countries?"
These issues and others were brought into discussion during the process of a design proposition for the Embassy of Israel in Slovenia and were expressed in the students’ projects of WIZO’s School of Design. The project was a result of cooperation with the Department of Architecture in Ljubljana, where the students reciprocally designed the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Israel.
The exhibition, sponsored by the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Israel, opened at the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem on January 13, 2014 and will remain on display there until the end of January 2014.
