Tel Aviv Museum of Art


27 Sha’ul HaMelech Blvd., The Golda Meir Cultural and Art Center,
Tel Aviv,


Wedged into a tight, triangular site within the city’s central cultural complex, this piece of architectural origami uses a soaring, twisting, 87-foot-tall atrium, called Lightfall, to link a series of refreshingly uncomplicated galleries. In contrast to many dramatically shaped new art museums, it succeeds in being at once breathtaking and deferential to the art on display.
