A Structure of Concrete Tesselations, Sharp Edges

American architect Preston Scott Cohen designed the recently-completed Herta and Paul Amir Building of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Three floors lie below ground, and two floors sit above ground. Its spiralling layout features a faceted atrium, and many variously angled walls lie without, creating a tesselation of concrete.
