Currently on show at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art’s Azrieli Architectural Archive is a humble yet powerful exhibition of commemorative sites designed by the Israeli landscape architecture duo Lipa Yahalom and Dan Zur. The exhibition, entitled “Landscape of Memory,” presents the drawings and models of three projects: the Ben-Gurion’s Grave at Sde Boker in the Negev, the Valley of the Communities at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and the Memorial for the Fallen of the Intelligence Community in Gelilot.

“Designed in different scales, all three projects are related to various aspects of Israeli nationhood: they are memorials to the founder of the state, the memory of the Holocaust, and to a branch of the army that brought the rebirth of the nation” said the exhibition curators Nurit Lissovsky and Eran Neuman.

Despite the fact that only the first two projects were fully realized, all of Yahalom and Zur’s design concepts honor collective Israeli ideals through the expert use of the surrounding environments.

“The three commemoration sites represent Yahalom and Zur’s dialectical perception of landscape...

their respect for landscape and their attempt to preserve its basis in nature, its uniqueness and its power are evident” said Lissovsky and Neuman.

“Landscape of Memory” is on show at the Azrieli Architectural Archive through October 2016. For more info visit www.tamuseum.org.il.
