Philosophy

We believe architecture has the power to transform reality and make life wonderful. 

We create buildings that are quiet, powerful, intelligent and beautiful. Buildings that are rooted and erected from the depths of the past into the future. Gradually deepen, understood and loved over the passage of time. 

We believe in buildings realized through passion, understanding and a sense of intimacy with the site, its potential, and the people who bring life to it.

Since its foundation, Gil Even-Tsur’s Architecture Workshop has developed a diverse body of work including residential, cultural & commercial buildings both in the US and abroad.

Gil Even-Tsur ,AIA

Gil EvenTsur is an architect, designer and an educator.

At an early age Gil was active in the arts, playing the saxophone and practicing music at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance.

After receiving his Bachelor of Architecture from City College of New York School of Architecture (Magna
Cum Laude) and winning the Best Thesis honor for his design of a spiritual center building, Gil began
working for the Pritzker Award recipient Richard Meier.

During his nine years at Richard Meier & Partners, Gil had the opportunity to work on numerous
outstanding projects. Most notable is the design for the AIA prize-winning condominium, 165 Charles
Street located in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, and Ara Pasic, a museum on the bank of Tiber River in
Rome, Italy.

After completion of 165 Charles Street, Gil also served as a project architect of the luxury residential
tower ‘Meier on Rothschild’ in the center of the White City of Tel Aviv, Israel. Gil acted both as the
design architect for the project, and as the Israeli liaison, mediating between the design team in New
York and the execution team in Israel.

In his work, Gil strives to bridge cultural differences by bringing exceptional architecture to his beloved
city, Tel Aviv, and his adopted city, New York.
For the past 5 years, Gil has studied and developed synagogue building types for both religious and
secular communities throughout Israel and the US. The premise of such sensitive work is to examine the
diverse denotations of new synagogue building types in modern Jewish life. Gil is currently working on a
book and exhibition about synagogue building types.

He is an adjunct professor at the New York Institute of Technology School of Architecture and Design
and frequently acts as a visiting critic at City College School of Architecture, Pratt Institute, Columbia University and the Cooper Union.

Gil Even-Tsur AIA is a registered Architect in New York State and in Israel.

Recently, Gil’s Architecture Workshop was selected as finalist in competition to design the Israel
National Library.
