Tel Aviv Art Museum to feature retrospective of influential architect Alfred Mansfeld

Mansfeld was one of the leading architects in Israel and is famous for designing the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

The first retrospective of the work of Israel Prize laureate in Architecture Alfred (Al) Mansfeld will be on display in the Tel Aviv Museum of Art next spring. It will be the first exhibition of the David Azrieli Israeli Architecture Archive, which was established in the museum about a year and a half ago.
Mansfeld (1912-2004) was one of the leading designers working in Israel. He was famous for designing the Israel Museum in Jerusalem (together with Dora Gad), but also designed hundreds of projects of various types, from Zim passenger liners to cultural halls and kibbutz dining halls, as well as residential and public buildings. As a lecturer at the Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology he taught generations of Israeli architects. He was also a member of the French Architecture Academy in Paris and the Academy of Arts in Berlin….
