Best Museum Award Goes to Tel Aviv Museum of Art

Tel Aviv Museum of Art Travel and Leisure which is considered one of the most influential travel magazines in America, commended the Tel Aviv building, stating that In contrast to many dramatically shaped new art museums, it succeeds in being at once breathtaking and deferential to the art on display.” While architect and T+L judge Billie Tsien, said: “The Tel Aviv museum is quite a piece of sculpture, but it is a sculpture that accepts art.”

Design...

Tel Aviv Museum of Art
The 195,000-square-foot, $55 million building, was designed by Preston Scott Cohen, Inc., of Cambridge, Massachusetts.  The freestanding concrete-and-glass building is a tour de force of complex geometry and light-filled space. The unique structure includes five levels—two above grade and three below—which twist from floor to floor, to accommodate large, rectangular galleries within the compact, irregular site.

Location...

Tel Aviv Museum of Art
The Museum campus is located in the heart of Tel Aviv, immediately adjacent to the Golda Meir Cultural & Art Center (with the New Israeli Opera and the Cameri Theater) and the Beit Ariela Municipal Library. The existing main building, a 175,000-square-foot structure by Dan Eytan and Yitzchak Yashar, opened in 1971 and was expanded with an 11,300-square-foot Sculpture Garden (opened 1996) and the 32,300-square-foot Gabrielle Rich Wing (Dan Eytan, 1999).
