City Hall of Bat Yam

Bat Yam, Israel, 1961-1963

The New City Hall of Bat-Yam, a mostly vacation town located to the south of Tel-Aviv, represents one of the most original and advanced projects of new architecture in Israel.

The building is in the shape of an inverted ziggurat built of reinforced concrete, cast in-situ and left natural. The stereometric basic element is based on the shape of a cuboctahedron. The building is supported only by 12 columns. All the floors are in reinforced concrete diagonal ribs, 23 cm wide and 37 cm thick.
