This award winning plaza is the heart of all pedestrian circulation in Ben Gurion University, as well as functioning as a welcome to the University, a meeting point, and a place of rest. The concept for the garden is the juxtaposition of reason and nature. The core of the garden is the representation of a desert wadi (valley). A classical style arcade surrounds and embraces this wild core and provides the shaded walkways and seating which make this a much used and comfortable university focus.
