Munio Gitai Weinraub: Architectural Thoughts

Ticho House

  • Date iconNovember 26 2022 - June 7 2023

Conceptual drawings and architectural plans from the desk of the Israeli architect, Munio Gitai Weinraub (1909-1970), part of the Israel Museum collection, show the development of two different projects: one, a national memorial site, Yad Vashem, which he began planning as early as 1942 that did not happen, and the second - an exhibition he designed for the agricultural settlement pavilion at the "Levant Fair" in 1936.

Through these two projects we see how he viewed the future—as reflecting the memory of the past—and how he, as a visionary and activist, saw the past while thinking about the future.
Also in the exhibition, works by female students from the architecture department at the NB Haifa School of Design, responding to one of the highlights of Brutalist architecture in Israel - a large housing project designed by Weinraub and Mansfeld in the Ramat Hadar neighborhood in Haifa.


The exhibition is presented as part of the "Traces 8" the national drawing biennial.
