Atelier d’Architecture Michel Remon : Tel Aviv University has chosen the winning project of the Open International Competition for the new Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Centre. The project of French studio Atelier d’Architecture Michel Remon famous for its works for research centres in France was selected as a result. One of the most technological and cutting-edge buildings in the Middle East will be completed by 2020.
The other two architectural companies were Jestico+Whiles Associates (UK) and Zarhy+Pez(Israel/Switzerland). According to Tel Aviv University, the proposal of Atelier d’Architecture Michel Remon fits the local context and identity of Tel Aviv and the University campus and reflects the advanced progress in science, technology and innovation, which is very important for the new centre and for the spirit of the Tel Aviv Campus. The final decision was made after a 6-month selection process, with the winner chosen from 128 applicants from around the world.
Professor Joseph Klafter, President of Tel Aviv University said: “It gives me great pleasure to announce the international Competition for the selection of the Architect for the new Nano Building to be constructed at Tel Aviv University.
“The designated Building will house Tel Aviv University Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Today, more than ever, institutions serving the national prerequisites of the country, need to be more creative and more advanced in science, technology and innovation, and the main goal of the architect will be to provide the best solution for a special building project that will be sustainable both in concept and construction.
“Tel Aviv University has already acquired a global reputation through its research and cooperation projects in the sphere of nanoscience and the centralization of all its academic and research efforts under one roof and one building will represent an important step in achieving our goals.
