Stairs inside the wonderful ‘Pinakothek der Moderne’ in Munich.
The Modern Art Museum was designed by architect Stephan Braunfels. The rectilinear facade, dominated by white and grey concrete, is interrupted by large windows and high rise columns, the latter supporting the extensive canopied roof. Each of the four corners of the building, connected by a central domed rotunda, is dedicated to a special collection. The Museum is thus divided into Art (Kunst), Architecture (Architektur), Design (Design) and Works on Paper (Graphik).
Ohel Jakob is a synagogue in Munich, Germany. It was built between 2004 and 2006 as the new main synagogue for the Jewish community in Munich and is located at the Sankt-Jakobs-Platz. Ohel Jakob was designed by architects Rena Wandel-Hoefer and Wolfgang Lorch who had previously completed the New Synagogue in Dresden. The building is a cubic structure of travertine stone topped by a glass cube. The glass roof represents a tent (Ohel), symbolizing Moses’ 40-year-journey through the desert.
