Chelouche Gallery is part of the Houses from Within Weekend

Friday, 18.05.12, 1:00 pm
Saturday, 19.05.12, 1:00 pm


Chelouche Gallery\'s building, Beit Hateumim

Architects: Yosef Berlin and Richard Pasovsky, 1925;

Preservation architect: Amnon Bar Or, 2003; Gallery architect: Danny Penzias, 2010


The architect Danny Penzias leads these tours at one of the most famous and prominent buildings in the urban landscape, focusing on its conversion into a gallery. Penzias will talk about the architectural challenges that characterized the project: how do you build a gallery in a building designated for preservation that was not intended for that purpose, and how do you deal with the limitations inherent in the structure – small spaces, large windows that detract from the exhibition spaces, the division into two floors that lack a physical connection between them, etc. The tours will also address the building`s historical background – which was one of the first buildings in the city, and over the years it has served as a residence, architecture school, and wing of Hadassah Hospital.

Reservations not required; each tour is limited to 40 participants on a first come, first served basis.
