The competition for the design of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art was held in 1964, and the building was completed in 1971.
The museum is comprised of four art galleries in three levels, surrounding the multi-level high main hall in the heart of the building. Ramps at the back of the hall lead up to the galleries, with balconies looking onto the hall forming passageways between the galleries, and the art library floating above the hall.
The main hall overlooks and leads to the concert hall, cafeteria and sculpture garden, and in the future will lead to the new western wing.
