Tel Aviv Museum of Art Amir Building by Preston Scott Cohen

Ça c’est formidable : des idées en 3d qui aboutissent à exactement la même chose en réel… wow. Une réalisation exceptionnelle en béton (et de superbes coffrages…). Par Preston Scott Cohen, Inc.

That’s great: 3d ideas that lead to exactly the same thing in real … wow. Outstanding achievement in cast concrete. By Preston Scott Cohen, Inc.

3d view

Located in the center of the city’s cultural complex, the program for the Museum of Art Amir Building posed an extraordinary architectural challenge: to resolve the tension between the tight, idiosyncratic triangular site and the museum’s need for a series of large, neutral rectangular galleries. The solution: subtly twisting geometric surfaces (hyperbolic parabolas) that connect the disparate angles between the galleries and the context while refracting natural light into the deepest recesses of the half buried building.

Museum of Art Amir Building was the First Prize Winner in the Herta and Paul Amir International Competition. The program includes Galleries of Israeli Art, Architecture and Design, Drawings and Prints, Temporary Exhibitions; Photography Study Center and Archives; Multidisciplinary Auditorium; Seminar and Conference Rooms; Art Library; Restaurant; Administrative Offices; Loading, Unpacking and Storage.
