A parking lot previously occupied the most central open space of the Technion, a campus of fifteen thousand students. The parking was moved, and in its place a stone-paved central plaza was established bordering a large sloping lawn. The lawn accommodates a large number of students for celebrations such as concerts and commencement. On the upper part of the lawn is a seventy-five meter-long water feature, built from massive stone with water recycled from the air conditioning system of the campus. For special events, the fountain can be turned off and the linear waterfalls provide additional sitting places.
This area has becomes a favorite place for student’s relaxation activities.
