This will be followed by presentations by the architect Friedrich von Borries: “Heimatcontainer. Deutsche Fertighäuser in Israel”, the architect Malkit Shoshan: “Village: One Land Two Systems” and Joachim Nicolas Trezib, architect and architectural historian: "Technocrats of Spatial Order. Central Places in Israel and Germany" and a discussion of The Urburb and how the suburban area originated in Israel. Moderated by creative director of the DAZ Matthias Böttger.
The name the Urburb stands for the interface between urban and suburban and documents 100 years of planing history of modernism in Israel. In the exhibition four computer controlled sand printers cut plans into the sand at the level of "country", "city", "neighbourhood" and "building unit".
