Design proposal for an Environmental Sculpture
- Mitzpe Marcus, French Carmel, Haifa
I was invited in Spring 2013 by a neighborhood group of the French Carmel neighborhood in Haifa, Israel, to submit a design proposal for an empty plot looking out over Haifa Bay.
The design was to fit in with an existing landscaping plan by the Haifa Municipality:

My proposal consists of several landscaping features:
- two retaining walls built with natural lime-stone and slightly elevated ground level
- four sculptural shade structures, made of wooden pillars at slanted angles, carrying shade-surfaces at various angles. Wooden planks are suspended between some of the pillars which serve as benches
- a gravel surface with two or three especially chosen natural rocks

The proposal is currently awaiting approval by the Haifa Municipality.
