Wednesday, 20 November 2019
Tel Aviv, Israel
DetailsJoin CTBUH Israel in collaboration with the Israeli Association of Construction & Infrastructure Engineering (IACIE) for the biennial IACIE conference, held at the "Expo TLV" Convention center. CTBUH Chief Executive Officer Antony Wood will open the conference as keynote speaker.
About the Conference:
The seaside city of Tel Aviv is the financial and cultural capital of Israel. Over the past two decades, substantial high-rise development has occurred throughout the city, blending into the historic low-rise urban fabric, and redefining the Tel Aviv skyline.
Exploring the case study of Tel Aviv reveals the typology of the current high-rise buildings as an outcome of the local culture climate and characteristics, which have heavily influenced the evolution of the city since it rose from the dunes.
