We recieved this Urban Action 2010 by Dror Bill from the Bat-Yam Biennale in Israel. It focuses on the tension between the temporary and the permanent, between the planned and the experienced.
Further information and photographs after the break.
We just recieved this very interesting project from Derman Verbakel Architecture. “On the way to the sea”, located in the city of Bat-Yam, Israel, transforms the space that lies between the city and the sea to a place of its own rather than an in-between passage.

Located in the center of the city’s cultural complex, the program for the Tel Aviv Museum of Art Amir Building posed an extraordinary architectural challenge: to resolve the tension between the tight, idiosyncratic triangular site and the museum’s need for a series of large, neutral rectangular galleries. The solution: subtly twisting geometric surfaces (hyperbolic parabolas) that connect the disparate angles between the galleries and the context while refracting natural light into the deepest recesses of the half buried building.
Tel Aviv Museum of Art Amir Building was the First Prize Winner in the Herta and Paul Amir International Competition. The program includes Galleries of Israeli Art, Architecture and Design, Drawings and Prints, Temporary Exhibitions; Photography Study Center and Archives; Multidisciplinary Auditorium; Seminar and Conference Rooms; Art Library; Restaurant; Administrative Offices; Loading, Unpacking and Storage. Following the break are drawings and construction photographs of this recently completed building.
