The Biblical city of Beersheba in Israel, where a completely planned new town is being built in the ancient desert settlement, has been honored by the second R.S. Reynolds Memorial Award for community architecture, the American Institute of Architects announced today. The architects and planners of Beersheba will receive the international award, $25,000 and an original sculpture in aluminum “for the design of a community in which architectural planning and design have made a most significant contribution” at the AIAS annual convention in Boston in June.
