Gabriel Schwake

Gabriel is a Masters student at the Azrieli School of Architecture in Tel Aviv University. His research investigates urban renewal projects in the Tel Aviv – Jaffa area and their respond to random changes. Gabriel looks at these processes through the prism of LeFebvre's philosophy of the citizens' "right to the city" – their right to take part in the process of urbanization and thus create a city more suitable for its dwellers on the one hand, and more flexible on the other. By comparing the different methods of demolition and regeneration of earlier projects such as Manshiya and later projects such as Kerem Hatemanim, Gabriel hopes to make a clear statement about planning methods and practical implementation.
