Arieh Sharon: Architect of the State

Arieh Sharon: Architect of the State

The first retrospective exhibition featuring the works of one of Israel's architectural forefathers. Arieh Sharon, a graduate of the Bauhaus School, planned over 600 projects, including kibbutzim, office blocks, hospitals
and university campuses. Sharon was the architect of the first masterplan of Israel, at the office of Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion. The exhibition presents a critical view of Sharon's work in architectural and historical contexts.

The exhibition is supported by The Azrieli Foundation and the Ministry of Jerusalem and Heritage
