Side view of the Yad Vashem Visitor's Center. Moshe Safdie, the architect: "The Visitor's Center is a framed concrete screen wall, roofed by glass and a delicate trellis. Jerusalem's constant sun breaks into endlessly changing pattern of shadows, a lacework of dark and light lines, dematerializing all who pass within it."
Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum. Moshe Safdie, the architect: "I was determined to cast the entire museum monolithically, jointless, unadorned - without any exterior waterproofing or cladding, nor any interior insulation or finishes. I wanted just the basic structure - concrete walls and floors, and glass to let the light in from above" #yadvashem #holocaustmuseum #architecture #moshesafdie
