JMB Journal 14: Architecture

Looking out of the window of the Jewish Museum Berlin, these days one sees mainly building sites. Just opposite the Museum, a new city square is being developed, including apartment buildings, shops, spaces for artists of all kinds, and the W. Michael Blumenthal Academy of the Jewish Museum Berlin. Reason enough to dedicate our JMB Journal to an art form which surrounds all of us, every day: architecture.

In this issue you'll read about the development of Berlin's Friedrichstadt, the district where the Jewish Museum is; you'll read about the Tugendhat House in Brno; about synagogues in Chicago and in Germany; about copper houses in Israel; and about the world's narrowest house. And, of course, you'll read about the challenge architects and curators face to build – and fill – a modern museum appropriately. You can also read this issue of the Journal on
