Book Launch: POMO Architecture of Privatization
Time & Location
Celebrating the launch of their book, POMO - Architecture of Privatization, architects Jeremie Hoffmann and Elad Horn will discuss the new architectural language Tel Aviv-Yafo adopted throughout the 1980s and 1990s. The local postmodern architecture will be examined not only as a style, influenced by Western forms and images, but mainly as an expression of a radical cultural shift that started with the 1977 political upheaval and ended in the early 2000s. The lecture will explore the evolution of the architectural language through the works of architects who were quick to creatively adapt to the new economic and political conditions.
The event will take place on the Liebling Haus rooftop, featuring a screening of Mikaela Burstow's photographs and a matching soundtrack of 1980-90s music.
The book will be on offer at a special price.
