Check Point Building | Kimmel Eshkolot Architects
School of Computer Science and the Unit for Science Oriented Youth, Tel Aviv University. First Prize in a competition held in 2013. To be completed in 2019.
The unique architectural language of this building aims to transcend the heavy materiality of buildings into the immaterial virtuality of computers and the software world.
The building will house both the School of Computer Science and the Unit for Science Oriented Youth, enabling them to function separately, but at the same time share some of the building’s functions.
The building, located at a central site in the campus, appears to be constantly changing, from material to reflection, blending with the sky and clouds.
The design language is inspired by the image and vision of cloud computing, and is meant to express the ideas inherent in this vision, combined with sustainability.
Expected for completion in 2019.
