Sharet Building, Tel Aviv University

Tel Aviv University

The Moshe Sharet Building is the Humanities faculty’s School of Education on the Tel Aviv University campus. It was planned in the late 1960’s and opened in 1970, before it was completed. Belsitzman and Leitersdorf were inspired to plan this university building in the Histadrut architecture style. Its plan is rectangular and long, formal façades with a constant and set sectioning of the windows, with shading at the southern ones. In the 5-floor building, the ground floor had a wide gathering lobby, cafeteria, offices, technical rooms, classes and different learning halls. Floors A-D above were typically planned, classes and rooms framing the contour of the plan with movement bases at their center and three inner yards that would bring daylight into the corridors around them.
