ReCA was established to promote discourse on and awareness of architectural culture and its influence on society. For this, we conduct tours, lectures, educational programs, community activities, and research. ReCA is under the auspices of the Rechter Architect firm and houses the office's archives, which were established in 1919 (the oldest firm in Israel).
Tours are available in English and Hebrew, upon request they can also be arranged in German, French, and Arabic. All tours are guided by architects with high presentation skills.

Architect Amnon Rechter is at the front of public architecture in Israel. Third generation architect, he is the head of the oldest architectural firm in Israeli history, that celebrated 100 years in 2019. His public buildings define in an original and thought-provoking way the elusive relationship between the expression of contemporary architecture that represent our time and era and between the iconic architecture of our founders generation. His work travels between the balancing and the contrasting, even juxtaposing between these architectural languages. Amnon guides in English and Hebrew.
