Position : Consultant - Conservational Architect & Designer

ari avrahami

Graduate of the Polytechnical School in Haifa, Israel - 1964

Ari Avrahami worked in Holland and later in England for Sir Denys Lasdun on the design for the London School of Economics. He also collaborated with Sir Denys on the design of the “Hurva” synagogue in the old city
of Jerusalem, replacing the previous design by the late Louis Kahn.

He opened an independent practice in 1975.

During the 80’s Ari ventured gradually into the field of planning and design within historical contexts, with special emphasis on putting old or even ancient buildings into modern use. He dealt extensively with the complex problem of “transplanting” modern infrastructure in old and fragile monuments, and has much experience with multidisciplinary teamwork.

In 1989, after nine years of intensive and varied work ranging from underpinning of foundations to the design of the exhibit displays, he completed works on the Museum for the History of Jerusalem in the ancient citadel with Renee Sivan as curator. Later, between 1990 and 1995 was the architect in charge for the restoration of the Nabatean city of Memphis in the Israeli desert.

For the last ten years, has been the architect for the planning and design team for the ongoing project of the vast Hospitaler citadel of Acre.
Since 2004 Ari has also been involved in the conservation and urban renewal of the old Ottoman “new town” of Beer Sheba – the capital of the Israeli desert.
