Castel Museum - Maale Adumim

Jerusalem, Israel, 1995

The museum was built and planned to house the work of the artist Moshe Castel. The area of the museum is 2,500 square meters and it was opened to the public in 2010.


The building overlooks the road that descends from Jerusalem to the Dead Sea, and consists of exhibit halls surrounding a central atrium. The roofing of the halls was made with pre-stressed concrete vaults that continue to the building's facade to create a decorative element. Slits were integrated between the vaults to let in natural light.

The building walls are made out of concrete with stone veneer.
