AE Interests: Built on the same site as the Semper Synagogue, which was designed by Gottfried Semper and consequently destroyed in 1938 during the Night of Broken Glass. Exhibits the polarity of stability and fragility through material dualism with an exterior structure of precast concrete and an interior structure of metallic, brass textile. Stone structure employs a curvilinear form that twists to the Jerusalem, the direction for prayer in Judaism.
