The building is located at the entrance to the Botanical Gardens of Tel Aviv University, creating a new entryway for them and suggesting a combined visit to the gardens and to the museum. Floating above the ground, the building exposes the gardens and ‘pulls’ them to the street.
Placed in the upper levels, the research laboratories give researchers access to the entire collections. They are separated from visitors with independent circulation paths. However, within the treasure box, at the peak of the museum path, visitors and researchers are exposed to one another in series of choreographed encounters.
Underground parking: 16,000 sqm
