Matan Gal

Dana graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design in 2016. After graduation, she joined HQ Architects and participated in several design processes. Between 2017-2021, Dana was a staff member at Bar Orian Architects and was responsible for unique preserved buildings and residential projects in Tel Aviv. 

In addition to her work in architecture, Dana also participates in the design development process of prototypes for her family's business, Doron Furniture. 

In 2021, Dana achieved her M.S. in Historic Preservation from GSAPP Columbia University in NYC. Her thesis project explores building materials as storytellers within the Israel-Palestine region and includes a case study of the Givat Ram campus, which is defined by its concrete and limestone presence. Co-advisors for her thesis were Prof. Mark Wigley and Prof. Amanda Trienens, with Prof. Jorge Otero-Pailos and Prof. Zvi Efrat as readers. 

Dana also collaborated with the Preservation Technology Lab during her studies as a lab assistant and editor of the materials video series for the Historic Preservation program. 

Currently, Dana is working for a NY-based design studio, AtelierTek, where she is involved in various types and scales of projects. 

Matan began his career in 2012 at Landmann Aluminum, a consultant and supervision company for facade technologies in the public projects sector in Israel. He worked there until 2015. In 2018, he graduated with honors from Bezalel Academy and received several excellence awards for his final project, including the third prize in Azirelli's annual best academic final projects. That same year, he won the third prize in the Israeli design award for the conceptual projects category and was selected to present at UIA Rio 2020 conference.


After graduation, Matan worked at several leading Israeli firms and was involved in large-scale public projects. Some of his notable projects include the Broadcom R&D Center & Engineering Labs at Tel Aviv University (Studio PEZ), the Architecture Department building at Tel Aviv University (Tsiovov-Vitkon architects), and the Kikar-Hamedina primary school (Tsiovov-Vitkon architects). In 2019, Matan served as a teaching assistant for Prof. Zvi Efrat in a design studio course for the third year. In 2020, he led a design studio course for the second year.


From 2021 to 2023, Matan worked for REX architects, and he currently works for Foster and Partners, aside of operating as an independent architect.


Dana and Matan have been collaborating since their academic studies in 2014. Together, they have established Lieber-Gal as a research and design practice. Their goal is to create a cohesive narrative by using an experimental approach, in order to achieve a unique and comprehensive outcome for each project.
