The Tel Aviv Art Museum designed by Preston Scott Cohen draws upon twisting geometric structures to create for its unique design. The architects had to work with the triangular area that the art museum is built on and the need to have large galleries with rectangular walls to accommodate the art work.

The Tel Aviv Art Museum plays with concrete slabs that it juxtaposes against the vast amount of window space. The architects were also successful in representing a visual link to the old museum while finding company with other great contemporary institutions of art.

The Tel Aviv Art Museum is a great success in its ability to bridge the functional problem of the location with the need of the institution to show art on its walls.
