Description

The Bat Yam town hall, or municipality building, is an avant garde gem of 1960s modernist architecture. Located in the town of Bat Yam, just south of Tel Aviv-Jaffa, this building has seen considerable decay until recently when it was re-recognized as an architectural achievement. The distinctive wind shafts have been destroyed.

Currently a new municipality building is in the works and the old one is being considered for re-use as an art museum.
