Richard Meier & Partners Architects | Rothschild Tower

In Tel Aviv, a 42-story residential tower is in the works for a site on the exclusive Rothschild Boulevard. Designed by architecture firm Richard Meier & Partners Architects, the plan takes its cues from light, sea views, and the surrounding neighborhood.

Transparent materials will be employed throughout the structure, which includes a lobby and retail space complete with glass canopy facades on the ground level, a second floor pool and spa, and a tree-lined open plaza at the entrance, creating a screen for street traffic.

“The intention is to create a pure and simple iconic tower that will function as a new landmark for the city of Tel Aviv,” says Meier. Richard Meier (born October 12 , 1934) is a American architect known for his rationalist designs and the use of the color white. In 1984, Meier was awarded the prestigious Pritzker Prize.

The building will be developed by Berggruen Holdings. Construction is planned to be completed in 2012.
