Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

Why do environmentally aware, responsive and sound projects malfunction? What causes tenants to misuse or distort them by making improper additions and modifications? Why isn’t the dictum “passive architecture needs active users” feasible – or is it? This paper surveys a number of projects in Israel designed and built between the mid-1970s and today and attempts to assess the reasons for their relative success or failure, their impact and the image they project. The projects presented are of different scale, function and complexity, and include residential, educational and community buildings, and a residential cluster.
