Ron Fleisher Architects shared with us their Israel-based project, the YRF English Studies Building for Children. Completed in 2010, the building sited in Ramla, a diverse city which inhabits both, Muslims, Christians and Jews, newcomers from Ethiopia and ex USSR. More texts and images from the architects available after the break.
The English language is a crucial tool for social mobility. Reinforcement of English studies opens up endless opportunities and changes the self-perception and ability of being an active individual in the society. YRF is an American fond that made the English studies in the Israeli periphery its goal. The children of the 21st century are exposed to intensive stimulations. The traditional educational methods aren’t satisfying as a significant alternative for contemporary communication. The educational act needs a space for a new learning experience. The new building for English studies realizes those ideas.
