Ron Arad’s Design Museum Holon set to open

The Design Museum Holon in Israel, designed by Ron Arad Architects, is set to open in January.

The building, which has been under construction for four years, is opening as part of a programme to transform the town of Holon, in central Israel, into a culture and education centre.

The museum will be constructed from five bands of varying shades of Cor-ten steel and will accommodate two main galleries and a number of diverse exhibition and education spaces in-between.

Ron Arad says, ‘We created a hierarchy of outdoor spaces so you walk in under the building into a semi-covered yard, where you have a choice to take the air-conditioned route or one exposed to the elements. The building envelope is not just a pretty space – it’s also a structure.’
