The French architect David Tajchman has envisioned a new skyscraper for Tel Aviv named “Gran Mediterraneo”, that offers a mix of programs including apartments, a hotel, an automated car park, public charging station, farming and public gardens, co-working spaces, spas and more – all “wrapped in mirrored glass” and white concrete. Innovative also with its topological geometry giving a spiral effect to the high-rise, the Gran Mediterraneo breaks with the global and usual stacking of horizontal slabs wrapped with mirrored glass, aiming to renew Tel Aviv skyline with a “Unesco proclaimed white city” specific vertical architecture

To be built with white concrete, using the latest construction and digital technologies, the curvy high-rise is filled with mediterranean and dead sea natures. Since Tel Aviv has stayed mostly true to this low-slung scale, especially for its concentration of Bauhaus buildings collectively nicknamed the White City, the Paris-based architect’s proposal for a mixed-use high-rise has gained so much traction. Besides, bringing together housing, office space, retail, and car parking with a provision for recharging electric cars, the Gran Mediterraneo aims to fill the gap of efficient public transportation in the city.

Pointing to the tower’s capacity to reduce traffic congestion, Tajchman emphasizes that its design is not just a seductive form. Even if his ambition is to give contemporary skyscrapers the same architectural merit as the city’s famous Bauhaus buildings, he believes that the mirrored glass of the numerous cells on the building’s façade would reflect the city’s famous sunlight and keep inside temperatures cooler.
