Design motifs of Jerusalem’s buildings and streets highlighted in new exhibition E-mail

Jerusalem in Detail, a new exhibition that opened in October at the Israel Museum, highlights often-overlooked but highly symbolic design motifs hidden in Jerusalem’s streets and buildings.

The exhibition was inspired by the research of David Kroyanker, the foremost chronicler of Jerusalem’s architecture. Kroyanker, an Israeli architect and architectural historian, has written dozens of popular books about Jerusalem neighbourhoods, streets, and buildings, and urban planning.

The exhibition enables visitors to hone their observational skills and discover the functional and decorative details that say so much about the many nations, culture and ways of life that left their mark over the centuries. The display spotlights Jerusalem’s cosmopolitan visual richness and whets the appetite for further exploration of the city. The exhibition, housed in the main gallery of the museum, is organised according to the various types of architectural details that show how different “builders” left their imprint on Jerusalem over the ages.
