Designed by Daniel Libeskind in collaboration with WRNS Architects, the extension of Contemporary Jewish Museum is so contrast. They make the connection between the old and the new by applying symbolic Hebrew letters, don’t ask!. Located in San Francisco, the museum expected to be open on June 8, 2008.
“The new building is based on the unprecedented spaces created by the Chai: the Chet which provides an overall continuity for the core exhibition and the Yud, located on the pedestrian connector which gives a new identity to the power station. Together, these letters and their meaning constitute a special emblem for the ongoing development of the Yerba Buena area.” Daniel Libeskind
