Kimmel Eshkolot Architects have designed The Check Point Building for the Faculty of Computer Sciences and science-oriented youth at the Tel Aviv University in Israel.
What immediately stands out is its exterior envelope. Created using parametric modeling, the pixel-glass design immediately recalls images on a computer screen, expertly representing what the building stands for.

BOARD GAMES IN THE CLASSROOM
Gamers gather around a table to unbox a new board game or bring out an old favorite. Together, they enter into a unique experience of mental challenge, social interaction, and creative play — an experience that draws them together.

I decided several years ago that I will not try to reach the reality; I am trying to put the colors and shapes as I view them; sometimes, the place is the exactly the same spot, but the artworks are so different." - Dita Jacobovitz
