The Tel Aviv University library building which was completed in 1968, was designed by Michael Nadler, Samuel Bikson and Shulamit Nadler and was awarded the Municipality of Tel Aviv's Rokach Prize in 1970. The building is a perfect example of the school which stresses the importance of achieving a delicate balance between all the elements of a structure. This balance is given expression in the relationship between the ground floor and the main library area which seems suspended in mid-air above it.

Mivtahim's Guest House at Zikhron Ya'aqov, designed by the architects Jacob Rechter, Moshe Zarhi and Moshe Pen, was completed in 1969 and was awarded the 'Israel Prize in 1973.

The Amal technical high school, completed in 1972, was designed by Ram Karmi who gained first prize for his design in a national competition held in 1 966. The school is an outstanding example of architectural dynamism achieved through combining contrasting elements .- free expression in three dimensions, on the one hand, and a set of well-defined geometric forms on the other.
