It is organized by the Jewish Museum in Amsterdam and, in addition to the German capital, will also be shown in Vienna, Munich, London and Tel Aviv.
The exposition consists of 17 projects for various Jewish institutions and institutions around the world. These buildings all date back to the late 20th - early 21st century, among the authors - Frank Gehry, Moshe Safdie, Mario Botta and Daniel Libeskind. Among the works on display for the first time is the design of the Zukki, a project to overlap the courtyard of the Jewish Museum in Berlin by Libeskind.
The curators focused on museums, synagogues, community centers and schools in Europe, Israel and the United States. Models, sketches and photographs in rooms decorated in different colors offer the visitor to trace the reflection of the national identity of the Jewish people in modern architecture.
They are complemented by some of the most significant buildings of the past - from the Jerusalem Temple to the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC - that have been sources of inspiration for modern architects.
