In the city of Holon, a few miles south of Tel Aviv, the Design Museum Holon (DMH) is designated to become a new cultural and educational hub for central Israel.  Occupying 3,700 square-meter semi-rectangular site, the DMH is wrapped in five bands of Weathering Steel (Cor-Ten) that curl and twist in, around and though the museum’s internal and external spaces.  They are never completely obscured from view, and serve as a visual thread running through and unifying the museum.  The bands are treated in a gradation of patinas that will weather over time and echo the geological striations of the Israeli desert.  The museum’s graceful and thoughtful design was created by London-based Ron Arad Architects.
