Ziv Leibu

Ziv Leibu is a Masters student at the Azrieli School of Architecture in Tel
Aviv University. For Ziv, architecture and its history, produce an
interdisciplinary discourse which extends beyond the object’s
visibility. Ziv’s interest in the history of Israeli architecture focuses
especially on the connection between the Zionist ethos and
Modernism. His research on the architecture of youth villages built
in the period surrounding the establishment of the State of Israel
aims to provide an essential reading of the local architectural
historiography, and eventually discuss repressed phenomena in
local architectural discourse. Ziv plans to continue his research
on these issues, so significant to local Israeli architecture, while
playing an active role in the education of the next generations of
architecture students
