Munio Gitai Weinraub: Architectural Thoughts
Timna Seligman and Rami Tareef
Plans and conceptual drawings from the desk of Israeli architect Munio Gitai Weinraub (1909–1970), part of the Israel Museum collection, show the development of two very different projects. The first was the agricultural settlement pavilion at the 1936 Levant Fair, and the second, his unrealized ideas for the design of a central site in memory of victims of the Holocaust, which he began planning as early as 1942. These projects show how Gitai Weinraub, a visionary and activist, looked to the future while also contemplating the national significance of the past.
In addition to articles about the projects at the center of the exhibition, accompanied by the original sketches, this small-format catalogue includes a biographical essay written by Olivier Cinqualbre, Chief Curator of the Architecture Collection, Musée national d’art moderne – Centre de création industrielle / Centre Pompidou.
