BO Landscape Architecture：早在20世纪30年代，受欧洲启发的林荫大道就成为了引领以色列城市社区和新街区规划的典范。建设这些宽阔的大道不仅促进了居民的健康，更形成了一排排独特的林荫空间，近年来，这些树荫下点缀着休闲座位空间，使人们越来越意识到树荫是可以使步行更加友好的一部分。当地多条街道经过重新设计，既变成了一个休息的地方，也成为了城镇上充满活力的聚会场所。
BO Landscape Architecture：Back in the 1930s, avenues inspired by the luxurious boulevards of Europe became the model leading the planning of Israel’s urban communities and new neighborhoods. Building these broad avenues was designed for residents’ wellbeing, avenues characterized by rows of shade trees, which in recent years were interspersed with seating areas as part of the increasing awareness of the need for shade and the encouragement of walking. Numerous streets were redesigned to become both a place to rest a while and vibrant meeting places in town.
The avenues, restored to their former glory over the past decade, are a model of high quality public space in Israel: spaces for pedestrians and cyclists, shaded with old trees, pleasant all year round, with various types of cafés, offering a variety of options for walking, sitting, and observing passersby, areas with benches as meeting places, and recently also providing a platform for temporary outdoor exhibitions.
阿米尔大道（Amir Avenue）位于哈德拉市的中心，是一条建于20世纪20年代的小道。道路上的榕树是1941年由Ahad Ha’am学校的学生种植的。该街道长约160米，宽约12米，是这座城市历史核心不可分割的一部分。
Amir Avenue (Herzl Avenue) is located in the heart of the city of Hadera – a small avenue built in the 1920s. The ficus trees were planted in 1941 by elementary school students from the Ahad Ha’am School. The street is approximately 160m long and 12m wide, constituting an integral part of the city’s historic core.
As part of the renewal of the Hadera city center, the Municipality has defined several focal points for initial intervention: Amir Avenue has been mapped as the central focus, with great potential to transform the look of the city and generate change in the urban fabric.

The idea on which the planning is based is the creation of a variation on the historical elements of the avenues, which currently feature three rows of Binyamina ficus trees. However, the central strip of trees is not fully planted. As in the historical avenues, here, too, are strips for walkers located between the rows of tree. One path has steps while the second is graded on an angle enabling accessibility. Differing from the European boulevard tradition, here we sought a different interpretation of the central strip. Instead of a gardened area along which seating areas are placed, we decided to transform the middle route into a play environment and meeting place.
The design comprises three major strips around the ficus trees: two are for walkers and cyclists, while the central pathway is an activity route. As part of the plan, an additional crosswalk was routed from the center of the avenue to improve connectivity with adjacent streets. In the central strip we created four informal sculptural seating foci, between them a path stimulating playfulness passing between grassy hills and balancing wooden logs.
黄色圆环，一个如同雕塑般的座椅元素，是被引入传统林荫大道的一个附加层，它被设计为非正式座椅，供人坐靠，交流和玩耍，为人们在休息和步行选择之外，提供了一种额外的独特体验。每个座位，包括四个连接到对角线梁上的环形长椅，都是在Lemon Collection Ltd的共同合作中完成的。
The Yellow Circles, sculptural seating elements, are an additional layer over the traditional boulevard, designed as informal seats enabling sitting, meeting and play, providing an additional unique experience along its length in addition to the rest and walking options. Each seating complex, designed in collaboration with the Lemon Collection Ltd, comprises four round benches connected to a diagonal beam.
The Yellow Circles enable seating in a variety of formats: one can sit or stretch out inside of a circle, climb over it or walk between the circles. The circles are placed on thin pillars, each at a different angle, all painted yellow and illuminated at night. Here we can see that they constitute significant visual placemakers in the heart of the city of Hadera.
Another special stratum along the avenue are the wooden play logs dispersed at its center throughout its entire length. Logs and planks for see-saws combined with the hillocks of grass create an experience of play along the avenue. The natural shade from the old ficus trees increase the option of remaining in the place.
The Yellow Circles and the finish of all elements along the avenue reflect a clean design aesthetic, forming a backdrop to the sculptural character of the sports installations. The paving and walls in the landscaped area are all in shades of light grey, while additional benches creating the seating corners are in wood tones similar to the colors of the seats of the sculptural benches.
The vegetation along the avenue comprises three rows of old ficus trees, while the activity strip is characterized by more exposed areas. In the grassy lawns and ground coverings areas, the same logic exists on its margins, characterized by flourishing shade plantings.
Similar to the historic avenues in Israel and abroad, Amir Avenue has been transformed from a marginal space at the edge of a roadway into an active place. The Yellow Circles and play environment all along the avenue create a unique environment, as a distinct place in the heart of the urban space.
