The Jewish museum Berlin

Architectural Observations

Wednesday, July 26th 2017

Daniel Libeskind’s new museum building has given a challenging architectural form to the history of Jews in Germany. The history of Jewish building reaches back over several centuries, and is closely entwined with the broader history of settlement and housing in Germany. One can sketch this history by reference to buildings erected for the community, for cultural institutions, for businesses and as private homes.

Construction, building restrictions, vandalism and destruction: every chapter in the story of Jewish building in Germany offers an illuminating insight into the historical context of Jewish life through changing times. To appreciate how modern architecture, too, can reflect this history, one should not miss the opportunity to study Daniel Libeskind’s museum from inside and out.

Meeting point:
By the museum, Lindenstrasse 9-14, 10969 Berlin, 6 pm U1, U6 Hallesches Tor

Duration: 60-90 minutes

Price: 15 Euro per person
