Following up on the festive opening ceremony of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art's brand new Herta and Paul Amir Building last week, we have received photos from the celebrations on October 30.
Just a few hours later, on November 1, the auditorium was also the venue for a symposium on the architecture of contemporary museums, featuring the building's architect Preston Scott Cohen in conversation with Eran Neuman and a roster of international architects, including Sylvia Lavin, Jeff Kipnis, Dan Sherer, Jesse Reiser, Inaki Abalos and Ben Van Berkel.
The 195,000-square-foot building houses an installation of the museum’s comprehensive collection of Israeli art, as well as its architecture and design galleries, drawings and prints galleries, photography study center, art library, new auditorium, a large gallery for temporary exhibitions and public amenities.
The Herta and Paul Amir Building officially opened to the public on November 2.
