Herta and Paul Amir Building of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art by Preston Scott Cohen
Designed by American architect Preston Scott Cohen, the Herta and Paul Amir Building has a spiralling plan with two storeys above ground and three underground floors. The images you see here are from the recently opened new wing at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, which has a dramatically faceted atrium piercing its centre:
Although the building has a triangular plan, these exhibition galleries are rectangular and display art, design, architecture and photography. The galleries overlook the 26-metre-high atrium through long windows that slice through its angled walls. Very futuristic.
