Item description for Jewish Identity in Contemporary Architecture/Judische Identitat in Der Zeitgenossischen Architektur by Aaron Betsky Samuel D. Gruber...

This international exploration of Jewish and Holocaust museums, modern synagogues, Jewish community centers and schools demonstrates how these important structures lend architectural shape to the Jewish identity.

Architects commissioned to build religious-based structures are uniquely responsible to the history and values of the community they represent. Nowhere is this more evident than within the Jewish structures of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, a time of disruption, destruction, immigration, and reconstruction of Jewish society. Accompanying a touring exhibition, this important work demonstrates the fundamental differences among fifteen museums, synagogues, community centers and schools throughout the world. It covers sites in America, where the architecture of Jewish institutions looks back on a legacy of uninterrupted development; in Israel, where the great wave of immigration adopted modernist as well as Mediterranean traditions; and in Europe, where rebuilding and reconciliation attempt to balance a history of pain and tragedy.
