In response to an invitation from Rishon LeZion, Israel, we developed a strategy for connecting the community and city at multiple levels, over the existing highway.

Rishon LeZion is the fourth-largest city in Israel, located along the coastal plain and 7.5 miles south of Tel Aviv. Currently, the sunken highway and rail line create a huge barrier inside the city. We propose to turn this unusable landscape into a hilly, programmatic parkland, we propose a series of green “blankets” that integrate biking, skating, and walking paths.

As a result, Rishon’s four sectors will merge into one, intertwined city, and the park will serve as a “gate,” highlighting the city’s entrance.
