Description  

Located in one of the oldest parts of Copenhagen in Denmark, the Danish Jewish Museum is housed in a former 17th-century boathouse and library built by King Christian IV. Studio Libeskind designed the new interior space, while preserving the historic building.

Visitors enter into a dynamic and exhilarating structure which offers a seamless organization of the artifacts and the path of the visitor. The entire building has been conceived as an adventure, both physical and spiritual in tracing the lineaments that reveal the intersection of different histories and the dynamics of Jewish Culture and its unfolding in contemporary life.

Studio Libeskind intertwined the historic vaulted brick structure with new exhibition spaces and displays. The juxtaposition of the contemporary and historic creates a dynamic dialogue between the architecture of the past and of the future.
