Ada Karmi-Melamede, Architect: Life-Sciences Buildings, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev by Ada Karmi-Melamede, David S. Robins, David Robins, Hélène Binet



At the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Beersheva, Israel, the newly built life sciences complex has provided the ideal meeting place for avant-garde architecture and state-of- the-art science. Nestled in the Negev Desert, this institute with a floor area of 14'500m2 is a perfect example of the beauty of concrete when used in an elegant and classical way. Even finer details such as the handrails or the sunshades, the skillful use of light and space are characteristic examples of the thoughtful design of this impressive structure. Helene Binet, the renowned architectural photographer, went to Israel to capture the building and its surrounding in wonderfully expressive images especially for this publication. From the very first plans to the final details, this book documents the genesis of the building, highlighting the design process through the juxtaposition of plans and photos.
