Aircraft Carrier : American Ideas and Israeli Architectures after 1973, Paperback / softback Book

Aircraft Carrier : American Ideas and Israeli Architectures after 1973 Paperback / softback

Edited by Erez Ella, Milana Gitzin-Adiram, Dan Handel


The year 1973 marked a watershed in the workings of global capitalism, in America's strategic interest in the Middle East, and in Israel's social, economic, and political structures.

Together, these elements, shaped by territorial struggles and energy crises, radically transformed Israeli architecture.This publication looks at the structural environment that evolved at the time with the aid of contemporary visual commentary, historical materials, and essays on architecture in both the United States and Israel.

The buildings being presented not only tell a tale of the unprecedented implementation of liberal and capitalist principles in a country that was hitherto known as a socialist welfare state, but of a cultural reorientation and an architectural agenda that are being examined today in light of another major crisis.
