Designtel - Negev Desert Synagogue, Zvi Hecker and Alfred Neumann

Negev Desert Synagogue [1969]

Zvi Hecker and Alfred Neumann

Built to a sparse desert landscape, the design is composed of three polyhedral modules that provide the overtly geometric form of the synagogue. Abstracted through a series of projections and intersections, Hecker and Neumann’s design takes aim at the sacred architecture typology, reassociating it with that of bold, playful modernity.
