아트갤러리의 출입구의 오픈스페이스 공간에 계획되어 있는
직사각형의 콘크리트 페이빙 위에 선형의 조경을 계획하여 리드믹컬한
상황을 연출했어요. 드문드문 적절히 배치한 콘크리트 벤치는
스트라이프 조경에 의해 나누어지는 페이빙 공간 (보행자로)에
놓여져 전체 공간의 포인트 역활은 물론 잠시 쉬어 갈 수 있는 (pause point)를 주네요.
Stripes of paving, plants and lighting form the entrance to Ben- Gurion University campus in Be’er Sheba, Israel, designed by Israeli firm Chyutin Architects.
The landscaped garden sits in a sunken plaza with a long lawn area on one side.
Rectangular concrete plinths coming up from the ground serve as benches.
The square serves an an entrance area for the university and also for an art gallery, which is planned for the site.

Here’s some more information from the architects:
BGU University Entrance Square & Art Gallery
The Deichmann square and the Negev Gallery constitute a link
between Ben-Gurion University campus and the city of Be’er Sheva. The
square serves as an entrance gate to the western side of the campus,
surrounded by existing buildings and the future Negev Gallery. The
square offers an outdoor space for cultural and social activities for
students and for the city population.
The square is bordered by the elongated structure of the gallery
facing both the city and the campus. Towards the city, the gallery’s
continuous façade (160 meter in length) unifies the heterogeneous
appearance of the existing buildings behind the gallery into a cohesive
urban unit. The city façade is accompanied by a sculpture garden
creating a green edge to the campus. The two story high monolithic body
of exposed concrete emerges from lawny topography of the northern part
of the campus and hovers above an entrance courtyard in the southern
part, where it appears to be leaping towards the urban space.
The gallery hosts exhibition spaces, museology faculty, workshops
and auditorium contributing to the outdoor activities on Deichmann
Square. Since the square was designated to accommodate intensive
congregation of youth and students, the preferred solution was to
allocate limited areas for vegetation. The design of the square with
various elements of exposed concrete connects the surrounding buildings
both physically and visually, accentuating their common features.
The square appears as a carpet of integrated strips of concrete
paving, vegetation and lighting with concrete benches and trees
scattered randomly. The strips of vegetation consist of lawn,
Equisetopsida and seasonal plants. The first phase to be realized was
the Deichmann square to be followed by the Negev Gallery.
