A New Building / Tel Aviv Museum of Art The Herta and Paul Amir / Arichtectural Competition
Tel Aviv Museum, 2003
Curator: Meira Yagid
In October 2011, following an international architecture competition and an international fundraising effort, the Museum’s new wing — the Herta and Paul Amir Building — was inaugurated. It is a spectacular and groundbreaking example of early 21st-century museum architecture.
Its distinctive design, by American architect Prof. Preston Scott Cohen, in collaboration with Israeli project architect Amit Nemlich, drew considerable interest from the moment it was completed. The book documents the stages of the competitions, The chosen building among 81 international architects.
