This is gorgeous! Designed by Ron Arad Architects, this building forms the first National Design Museum in Israel. The interior is actually made up of simple box-like shapes for efficiency, which comes as a total contrast to the exterior views.
The massive Corten steel strips that form the exterior space help to define the building on its site. Based loosely on the topography of the existing site the strips weave in and out of the museums internal spaces. Sometimes they meet and meander in unison, while other times they separate to create additional definition to spaces and a vertical cover. The bands act as a spine for the building – both supporting large parts of it structurally and dictating its posture in relation to its surroundings. They also further emphasis the topography back bone of the project by varying in shade and colour, something which will be further defined by the weathering of the steel over time.
