Description

Beit Hatfutsot, the Museum of the Jewish Diaspora was designed by Eliahu Gwircmann and Itzhak Yashar after winning an international competition judged by a panel headed by Miles van der Rohe. Opened in 1978, the museum, located on Tel Aviv University's Ramat Aviv campus, tells the 4000 year history of the Jewish people through a unique and interactive experience. The building is designed in the Brutalist style.
