The National Library of Israel is finally back on track. While Israeli architect Rafi Segal was originally awarded the project, he was dismissed after a copyright challenge from some of his ex-colleagues at the Harvard School of Design. The library’s new designers, Herzog & de Meuron, have just released their first images of the Jerusalem-based public institution. The Swiss firm was awarded the contract in April 2013, four months after Segal was dismissed. Herzog & de Meuron’s concept is described as strong and sculptural and is being developed in partnership with local firm Shinar Architects.
