The Wohl Centre

The Wohl Centre, a major expansion to the Bar-Ilan University Campus in Ramat- Gan, Israel, is the central convention center for the university, utilized for university programs and special events.

The 38,000-square-foot convention center stands on a critical crossroad in the campus and opens a dialogue between the university and its neighbors. As such, it is a gateway and beacon for the students, faculty, guests and the public.

The concept for the Wohl Centre, Voices and Echoes, symbolizes and brings together the two essential components of the Bar-Ilan University: the secular and the sacred. Apparent in the form of the building is the interrelation between the dynamics of knowledge and the unifying role of faith.

The building functions as an ensemble which through its flexibility of usage can function equally intensively during the day or the night. The building’s exterior is homogeneous in form, built in stone and metal, penetrated by the projections of the “labyrinth of letters,” which defines and organizes the glazing and indirect light. The functional volumes of the program and the subtle enigma of light are carefully adjusted to create a space that provides both active and meditative atmospheres.
