About the speaker

Meet Roy Gordon, associate architect and CEO of Rechter Architects, and one of the architects behind the alternative plan for Kikar Atarim.

A once vibrant square originally designed by the Israel Prize winning architect, Yaakov Rechter, Kikar Atarim once again became part of the public discourse when developers began pushing forward a plan to build a huge high rise complex in the historic landmark. As Tel Aviv contested the proposed plans, Roy realised that the best way to join the dialogue as an architect was to offer his thoughts in architectural terms. The resulting plan is now seriously being considered by the various groups responsible for the project.

A graduate (B.Arch) from the University of TLV, Roy has been working with Rechter Architects since 2008, and is responsible for various large scale projects including: the renovation of the Tel Aviv Court, the upgrade of the Kfar Saba Cultural Center, a new neighbourhood at the Weizmann Institute, the Design of The Conservatory of Music in Eilat and many more. He is also the Director of the Rechter Center for Architecture, a non profit organization established to promote high quality dialogue around architecture and space in Israel.
