'In Tel Aviv of the 1950s and 1960s, solar protection was hype. Architects loved it: inspired by photographs of the modernist architecture of Brazil, they indulged in the creation of a new architectural idiom in which external shading devices served as the major visual attraction. The ornamental frenzy, justified by climatic considerations, was far from securing perfect solar control; its failures expedited the emergence of a new vernacular that would change the city’s image forever.

Daring the Shutter is the product of a collaboration between architectural historian Or Aleksandrowicz and Dr. Zvi Elhyani, Israel Architecture Archive’s founder and director.'
