Israel embraces its neighbor's architectural heritage with a new pyramid tower:

The design combines symbolic forms and myths with contemporary building technology and aims to “gives the neighborhood a vibrant public space in the heart of the ancient city”. In addition to its visual appearance and symbolic role, the building’s form also allows maximum natural light to reach the public plaza below. A geometric pattern made from Jerusalem stone and glass reference traditional architecture, while the arched colonnade on the ground floor connects the public plaza to the inner shopping arcade. The project is expected to become a new city landmark and integral part of the neighborhood. It is expected to break ground in 2019.
