Challenged by financing mechanisms of public buildings in Israel, the unique design of this bus terminal integrates 9000 sqm. of bus terminal with 9000 sqm. of commerce and six floors of office spaces on top. The formal challenge was to allow built areas without producing urban alienation with a large enclosed building. The structure manages to break the traditional rectangular plan and thereby creates squares, urban spaces and commercial facades towards the surrounding streets, thus contributing to the development of the existing city center, instead of weakening it, while still preserving the building's clarity and usability.
