The Bat-Yam Biennale of Landscape Urbanism | Timing 2010

Roadwork, construction, renovation, paving, roads closed for resurfacing… urban space is a constantly shifting entity. While the permanent "flexibility" of urban reality allows for dynamic evolution, it also lends a sense of uncertainty to everyday life. The 2010 Bat-Yam Biennale invites projects that examine the city’s “flexible” nature in relation to both infrastructures and resources, offering innovative uses for spaces that are under construction, transforming them into functional, temporal urban spaces.

The City of Bat-Yam is located south of Tel Aviv–Jaffa. West of Holon and north of Rishon Le'Zion. To its west is the Mediterranean Sea. The population of Bat-Yam counts 160,000 residents on 8 Square Kilometers (3 Square Miles) in the Heart of the Gush Dan metropolitan area.

The population of the city is a rich multi-cultural mix of immigrants and native Israelis, secular and religious people from a variety of backgrounds. The sea and the cultural diversity are two major components of Bat-Yam from its early days up to now.
