ISRAEL. Tel Aviv Museum of Art doubles size
02/11/2011 14:10:57

Tel Aviv Museum of Art is set to unveil a striking new wing designed by US architect Preston Scott Cohen. The new space provides a permanent home for hundreds of works by Israeli artists, mostly held in storage.

"The architectural space Preston Scott Cohen made is simultaneously linear and multi-layered. A vertical "light fall" drains the building's vertical dimension, orientates the visitor, unites all spaces around it, leads from one level to another, and brings natural light to the building's lower level. The building's exterior envelope, an extended "folding" surface that breaks at disparate-angled modules, is a dynamic ornament made of 430 polished cement panels manufactured on location." The planning of new building of about 19,000 m2 was enabled by a donation from Herta and Paul Amir, Los Angeles.
