A Sneak Peek at Libeskind’s Contemporary Jewish Museum

0326libeskind.jpg

Speaking of Daniel Libeskind, as we briefly mentioned in that last post, the good people over at Curbed SF have gotten a rare opportunity to check out his newest building, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, which you might remember us talking about a while back. Although it doesn’t open its doors to the public until June 8th of this year, Curbed was able to wander around a bit in the new building and boy did they love it. Here’s a bit:

Perhaps all of this Obamarama “hope” rhetoric has colored our general disposition as of late, but we must say that our preview of the Libeskind-designed Contemporary Jewish Museum left us with just that — a distinct feeling of hope…

…In traversing the new space — especially the main gallery on the second floor- – we felt like Libeskind took more than a few notes from his experience with the [Denver Art Museum]; the building was heavily criticized as being physically unconducive to hanging art work (not difficult to imagine given his propensity for angles of the anything-but-90-degree variety). Major problem, no? Here in San Francisco, however, we found a different story.

Did we mention they’ve got loads of photos too? That’s worth your price of admission right there!
