Holocaust History Museum - Moshe Safdie


Situated on a hillside overlooking Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem Valley, the new Holocaust History Museum is the culmination of a 10-year redevelopment project of Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority. The Holocaust History Museum, the most essential component of Safdie’s 800,000-square-foot project, replaces Yad Vashem’s existing Historical Museum, and serves as the complex’s new core. Most of the Museum’s concrete and glass “main body” is hidden within the Mount of Remembrance, on which the Yad Vashem campus is situated, allowing little more than its 500 feet elongated, angular spine to convey a sense of its true scale. At one end of the spine, closest to the Museum’s entrance and to the Visitors Center, a large triangular prism cantilevers outward over the valley floor, seemingly floating into space. At the opposite end, the museum’s low-slung, slender walls burst forth from the hillside to form the curved pair of wings that mark the Museum’s exit. (to find out more..)

Hi hooman, sorry for such late reply as I've only seen ur comment, thanks for leaving one anyway.
I don't know much about this museum actually, but we can try, it's always good to do such things undone before.
If you still wants, can email to us.
:)
