Massimiliano Fuksas Architetto is the designer of The Peres Center for Peace located in Israel, Jaffa Tel Aviv. Fuksas explained that
"To imagine a place that is not virtual, but real. To be dedicated to Peace, is an immensely taxing undertaking of profound ethical significance, peace is spiritual condition, an aspiration: tension and utopia. I have thought of a series of layers, a building that represents TIME and PATIENCE in strata of alternating materials representing places that have suffered heavily."
"The Peres Center for Peace is a parallelepiped, obtained by irregularly shaped green concrete and glass layers standing on a monolithic base."
