  2. 2. Introduction … • The new Holocaust museum (Yad Vashem) spreads over an area of 4,200 sq mts….ovr the har Hazikaron (the Mount of Rememberance) in Jerusalem, Israel.. • Its at a height of 800 mts above the sea level. • The museum is built in remembrance of the martyrs and the innocent Jews who lost their lives during the reign of Nazism. Rafay Ahmad | Rizvi College of Architecture Rafay Ahmad | Rizvi College of Architecture
  3. 3. DeSiGn CoNcEpT The basic guidelines for the museum’s design was to create a visitor’s route dictated by evolving narrative, with a beginning, middle and end such that it could emphasize the unique human stories of the jewish populationin in europe during those days SaFdie ‘s design Safdie during designing felt that the story of holocaust has no equal , and it could not be accommodated in a conventional building. To preserve the character of Mount remembrance keeping In mind its delicate site and Profound surroundings He concived a prisim like triangular Structure. The museum within the earth, allowing little More than its elongated , angular spine to Convey a sense of its true scale. Rafay Ahmad | Rizvi College of Architecture
  4. 4. DeSign The design of every space is done keeping in mind the experience of every individual. The museum is sensitively designed so as to be easily accessible to people with physical disabilities. The triangular form of the structure was chosen to support the pressure of the earth above the prism while bringing in daylight from above through a 200 meter-long glass skylight. The warped surface formed by this variation, amplified by a gently sloping floor, creates a changing sequence of spaces and gives the illusion of descending deep into the mountain. As the route nears its northern exit, the floor begins to ascend and the triangle opens up again, with the exit bursting forth from the mountain’s slope to a dramatic view of modern-day Jerusalem Rafay Ahmad | Rizvi College of Architecture
