L.A. Tamar Posfeld

Associate Teaching Fellow

Landscape Architecture Track

For the last few years Tamar has been interested in developing and improving aspects of sustainability. To this end, she was one of the co-founders of the ILGBC- the Israeli Green Building Council, and currently is part of the Israeli Association of Landscape Architects team compiling and advancing SLIL- Sustainable Landscapes Israel, a green building code specifically for landscape Architecture, based on Israeli practices, (some of which are questionable…). She's held numerous professional roles, namely 5 years as President of the Israeli Landscape Association. One of the main projects she was involved in was the Trans-Israel Highway, where she held the position of Landscape and Development Manager. Though it was and still remains a controversial project, the rehabilitation concept that Tamar advanced and implemented as part of the Concessionaire, did indeed advance and improve landscape practices.
