Ariel University’s architecture students were excited to reach the global finals for the world’s most environmentally friendly home. While working to complete the construction of the “Abraham’s Tent” project they were caught by surprise when notified by the Spanish government that they could no longer compete, due to the University’s location east of the Green Line. The University responded to the baseless disqualification with a law suit, in the Spanish courts. Ariel University won the case, was awarded compensation and proved, on the international stage, that Ariel’s academic excellence is not to be boycotted.
