Hecker had to make a herculean effort to design and produce so much discord and ugliness in one place.
Slide56: I do not know if you are familiar with this very strange housing project. It was designed in the early 1970's by Architect Zvi Hecker in Ramot. This is a another "period piece" - a completely crazy project, not very pleasant to live in, but was the result of the aforementioned attitude of the Ministry of Housing which was condemned for the construction of ugly monotonous buildings. When in the 1970s, the Ministry of Housing felt that they had to give a free hand to architects, one architect who made good use of such freedom was Zvi Hecker who designed this.
