It's hard to believe that we're celebrating our 27th anniversary. It seems as though only yesterday the campus was an army base, and now – a leading international academic institution, with 10 schools and numerous academic and research achievements, celebrating 27 years of achievement.
This is a fitting time to pause, be transported on the wings of nostalgia and recall what was once here: which building was erected on the ruins of the military kitchen, which antiaircraft simulator disappeared at the dead of night, and for what purpose, or what hides in the old hangar?
This is also the time to share once more our gratitude to all those who contributed and helped make Reichman University exceptionally successful in the field of higher education in Israel – transforming it into the academy for tomorrow's leaders.
The stories behind the place
In a manner so very charateristic of the innovator that he was, Efi Arazi chose a young architect to build this building. Sammy Ofer's Donation to Reichman University was given when the building was almost complete.
The building bears the distinct fingerprint of architect Moshe Tzur who tends to "break" his buildings - this building is made up of three different blocs.
During construction, Reichman University became involved in the idea of the Academy of the Future, and whereas the original plans included sloping classrooms, it was decided that there would be need for "regular" (straight floored).
