I agree with you all, away with Gehry-esque architecture. The idea of a Jewish Museum is nice but the architecture sucks!
Starchitecture to the max. It's ugly as.I really hope this grandiose project won't ever get built in TLV !
It is just a pompous design alienated to the city's environment like a gigantic spacecraft landed in the middle of what is supposed to be the extension of the Yarkon park and the posh North Star neighborhood.
I also don't give a hoot whether Frank Gehry is one of the world’s most lauded architects since his design proves he lacks any sense of place, let alone its landscape. The project seems to be pretty much foreign to architectural language of Tel Aviv and its fine collection of International and Bauhaus style buildings. Tel Aviv doesn't need an iconic building in the stye of the opera house in Sydney or the like, it has its own vibe and anything else will be just distracting.
Lol'd so hard on this comment I nearly criedI would prefer a more classical/traditional building. Especially so near to the sea, it could be a kind of villa style.
Well how is less inappropriate than a crazy modern building?Lol'd so hard on this comment I nearly cried
Seriously a roman neoclassic villa for a museum on Judaism? What do you propose for a museum on hinduism, a british castle? :lol:
