Or Akiva Cultural Center

The construction of the Or-Akiva Cultural Center was the cornerstone of the plan to establish Or-Akiva as an advanced city. The project, which won the first prize in an open public competition in 1996, again won the Beautiful Israel prize for 2003 when it was completed.


The Urban dialog that relates between the southern and northern parts of the town (“old city” – “Orot”) and the West-East Axis (Or Akiva - Caesarea) by its arrangement creates the new modern heart of the town.
