Charles Weinberg and Shai Ben Ami started their architecture degree at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem in 2014. Their mutual story started in the summer of 2016 when joining forces while participating in a studio course and seminar in Tokyo. Since then they have become partners in work and life.
Whatever the essence of the project, Charles and Shai have developed high proficiency in teamwork, enabling them to cooperate effectively and in a variety of media and scales. While believing in staying faithful to the present time, their work seeks to stay sensible, responsive and critical.
