jewish museum berlin


Back in february two of my best mates and I went to Berlin for the weekend to see what all the fuss was about and had just about the best weekend of my life! I just came across this photo of the jewish museum and had to post it as the museum blew me away compltely. Built by Daniel Libeskind in 1999, the whole building was designed around Jewish history in Germany from the 4th Century to the present. It’s beautiful architecture, but what’s most striking is the concept behind the design, the whole thing makes you feel disorientated and confused, with corridors bending upwards and then downwards and narrow walls with tiny gaps. It is intended to make you understand the disorientation of the holocaust. Absolutely amazing.
