Study of the Jewish Museum - San Francisco, USA
The Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM) was founded in 1984 in San Francisco, California, with the goal of offering contemporary perspectives on Jewish culture, history, art, and ideas. In June 2008, the Museum moved to the Yerba Buena Gardens district of San Franciscoís South of Market neighbourhood, into a new building designed by architect Daniel Libeskind.
The museumís tilted, dark-blue stainless steel cube, constructed by A. Zahner Company, slices into the old substationís brick, making visible the relationship between the new and the old. Libeskindís design preserves the defining features of Polkís old building, including its brick facade, trusses, and skylights. 36 diamond-shaped windows light the top floor of the metal cube, known as the Yud, which hosts sound and performance based exhibitions. The museumís other section, a slanting rectangle known as the Chet, holds the narrow lobby, an education centre, and part of an upstairs gallery.
