Unique Technion Building
Needs No Air Conditioning

HAIFA—A radical break with
conventional architectural plan-
ning is represented in the new
Danciger Mechanical Engineering
Building of the Haifa Technion,
dedicated recently.
The building, designed by a
Technion faculty member, Prof.
A. Neumann, and a Technion grad-
uate, Zvi Hecker, was made pos-
sible by a donation of $750,000
from the Danciger Estates in mem-
ory of the late Dan, Sadie and
Joseph Danciger.
The two-story building has no
walls in the conventional sense.
Triangular contours and an over-
hang protect the buildings from the
elements, so no artificial system
of air conditioning is required,
glare is eliminated, and there is no
need for blinds or shutters.

HAIFA—A call for research in
earthquake engineering, on Israel's
own behalf and to provide techni-
cal 'know-how' for export abroad,"
was made by Prof. Itzchak Alpan
of the Technion, Israel Institute of
Technology, who has just returned
rom a year spent as UNESCO ex-
ert at the International Institute
of Seismology and Earthquake En-
gineering in Tokyo.
He pointed out that earthquakes
are reported to have killed 350,000
people and caused damage amount-
ing to about $10,000,000,000 in the
second quarter of this century.
Israel would be regarded as an
area of low seismic activity. Nev-
ertheless, over the centuries earth-
quakes of various degrees of in-
tensity have occurred at places
such as Caesarea, Gaza, Tiberias,
Nablus, Jerusalem, Ramle, Acre,
Lydda, Jericho and Safed.
One of the most severe earth-
quakes took place on Jan. 1, 1837
and caused damage over an area
extending from Beirut to Jerusa-
lem. In Safed alone, near the epi-
center of the earthquake, 5,000
people were reputed to have been
killed, and there are descriptions
of clefts that gpened in the ground
and of houses on the steep slopes
falling on one another.
