Jonathan Letzter

Jonathan Letzter is a Masters student at the Azrieli School of Architecture at Tel Aviv
University. In his research he discusses the question of additions
to historic buildings, and the fact that despite the considerable
differences between the building and the new addition, both parts
emerge as a single functioning entity. Jonathan looks at the various
means of expression in the connection between the historic
building and the new addition, in a way that allows preservation
of historic, cultural and social values. He hopes to be able to apply
his conclusions to practical design, testing it in an existing urban
texture, thus enabling urban renewal and strengthening of historic
centers of cities.
