Arch. Elad Horn


Architecture Track

Elad Horn is a Ph.D. candidate in the Big Data in Architectural Research Lab (BDAR), supervised by Dr. Or Aleksandrowicz. Elad's research in the fields of History of Architecture and Digital Humanities examines the ways economic and spatial transformations in Tel Aviv-Yafo in the 1980s and 1990s generated new architectural idioms. As part of his research, Elad is developing new tools for mapping, documenting, and analyzing historical data through methods of historical GIS, Big Data analysis, and Machine Learning/AI. Elad's latest book, PoMo – Architecture of Privatization (2021), with Dr. Jeremie Hoffmann, documents the evolution of Tel Aviv-Yafo's architectural landscape in the wake of Israel's transition towards neoliberalism at the end of the 20th century. From 2017 to 2020, Elad directed the Avie and Sarah Arenson Built Heritage Research Center at the Technion, and he is currently in charge of the center's archive and collections. He teaches the built heritage research seminar of the final design project in architecture. Elad holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in 2011, and a Master of Design Studies (MDes) from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University in 2016.
