Tel Aviv — In recent years, Tel Aviv has gained international acclaim as a mecca for fans of Bauhaus architecture from the 1930s and 1940s. With the opening of the new Herta and Paul Amir Building of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the city’s architecture is again helping to attracting global attention.

The $45-million building, which opened last month, is part ambitious architectural statement and part display window onto the world’s largest collection of Israeli art, which stretches back a century.

The entrance of the new Amir Building is nestled into a cultural complex that also houses the Cameri Theater.
