Israeli Museum - Yitzhak Rabin Centre
Tel Aviv, Israel
The Museum’s aim is to exhibit the contemporary history and changing face of Israeli society, emphasizing a future of mutual respect among citizens (Jews, Muslims and Christians) and between Israel and its Arab neighbours. The planning concept draws inspiration from nature in the form of a flower. Surrounding a concrete cylinder, various milestones of Yitzhak Rabin’s life are revealed along a spiral walkway. The ceiling of the exhibition space is disconnected from the cylinder allowing natural light, seen as an expression of hope, to penetrate. The path ends alongside flowing water also symbolising hope. Materials used include steel, concrete, glass, timber and cast aluminum.
