Vera and I are currently taking part in an architecture exhibit to remodel the old city of Be’er Sheva in Israel. The opening of the exhibit took place last night and as per usual we were dressed to impress!
Here are some pictures from the opening, showing our fabulous outfits.
Vera’s project, Hidden City, deals with rundown residential areas which used to have common gardens and public space for relaxation and gathering, but which have been destroyed and diminished over the years. Vera’s proposal is to create walkways and secret gardens inside the building complexes which would allow new gathering spaces. These hot desert spaces would be shaded and cooled by dynamic shading devices that react to the sun’s path during the day.
Vera wore a print peasant dress with a studded belt and cutout cream flats. Her dress made for an interesting visual effect next to the beautiful graphic design of her display at the exhibit.
My project, Acoustic Gardens, aims to revive the old city’s rundown industrial areas where the residents suffer from horrible acoustic hazards from surrounding roads, garages, workshops, etc. My proposal is topographic gardens which create acoustic barriers from the surrounding noise and allow for an isolated quiet space. These gardens offer new quiet spaces for gathering, rest, shading and repose for all the public to enjoy. At the same time, the gardens greatly improve the quality of living for the surrounding residential areas by solving acoustic problems and creating new green space.
I wore an A-lined turquoise dress with a pink belt, high heeled leopard print mary janes, envelope clutch, and lots of mother-of-pearl jewelry.
Follow us for more on design and architecture and of course lots of fashion! We hope to participate in many intriguing exhibitions in the future!
