The first round of a two-round public competition to select an architect to design a new home for the National Library of Israel is now open.
The first round of the competition is open to architects licensed in Israel. At the end of this anonymous round, up to four architects will be selected to advance to the second round. Eight additional architects, four from Israel and four from abroad, were invited to participate directly in the second round. All participants in the second round, which is anonymous as well, will receive funding to help defray the cost of preparing plans and models.
