LabLitArch Jerusalem

Matteo Pericoli‘s “LabLitArch Jerusalem”, a laboratory in literary architecture, brings together advanced students from the Programs of Cultural Studies and Creative Writing at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Department of Architecture at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, as well as architects and writers, for collaborative, plastic-theoretical and actual work on questions about the making of space and place. What is a place, or a space; how are they made; what are they made of; and to what human needs do they respond? Can literary inhabitability, structures of feeling such as rhythm, tone, or reticence, literature’s spatialization of time, and literary ways of world-making be expressed in architectural terms? Is there a building underlying our literary text?
