New Synagogue

Dresden, Germany

In 2001, on the anniversary of the destruction Dresden’s old synagogue on November 9, 1938, the New Synagogue was consecrated after more than 60 years – a sacred building consisting of a cube twisted upon itself towards the East, the direction of prayers towards Jerusalem. The chosen cube‐shape takes its cue from the first temples of the Israelites, making reference to original rites and traditional symbols. The synagogue is a place of contemplation and prayer, but also hosts regular concerts.
