DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION
Nir Feferberg (1992, Jaffa), works with assembling photographs, lines and texts into collages of an art-architecture complex. Out of curiosity for social engagement, he aims to optimistically appeal on the architecture discipline boundaries. Being the director of education and a documentary photography project executive at ReCA, he is also a founding member of an architectural cooperative (the Young Architects Cooperative), and partner at the Culture of Solidarity community. Formerly taught and assisted architecture studios at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, served as a research assistant to the curator at “Liebling Haus”, and taught cinematography for primary schools.
HEAD OF TOURS
Russko (Yaniv Luria) is a Kibbutz born and Tel-Aviv-based. Exploring the relations between community and space, Russko uses architecture as a critical lens for culture research. His main interest interrogates the social-political structure with International Style architecture in the Kibbutzim (MA, Bezalel Academy). He holds a curator certificate and interned at The Azrieli Architectural Archive of TLV Museum. He is the constructor, head archiver of The Dani Karavan Archive, and a Liebling Haus tour guide expert at white city architecture. Russko taught geography and design in high school and formerly was a teaching assistant in Social thinking for design students at the College of Management. His research experience and interdisciplinary design perspectives created a unique concept for urban tours, which led him to be the Head of Urban Tours and content development At ReCA.
For more than 20 years, Architect Amnon Rechter is at the front of public architecture in Israel. Third generation architect, he is the head of the oldest architectural firm in Israeli history, that celebrated 100 years in 2019. “Rechter Architects” have been arguably the most influential outfits, on cultural and civic life in Israel through their many iconic and important buildings throughout the state of Israel. His public buildings define in an original and thought-provoking way the elusive relationship between the expression of contemporary architecture that represent our time and era and between the iconic architecture of our founders generation, the architecture of the 50s and 60s. His work travels between the balancing and the contrasting, even juxtaposing between these architectural languages.
Architecture has never been closer to cinema as every project is a Visual script telling us a new story.
