In this rare view of six projects, award-winning architect and artist Kenneth Treister expresses the importance of uniting architecture and art to create sacred spaces. His poetic sensibility combines with the vast wingspan of his creative vision to produce exceptional works for those interested in Judaism, architecture and art.The impressive photographic skills of architectural photographer Laszlo Regos allow us to share in the beauty of these rich spaces. There is also a compelling Foreword by the world-renowned scholar and author Rabbi Yitz Greenberg. This book includes: Temple Israel’s award wining Gumenick Chapel; the restoration of Temple Emanu-El; the hand-carved murals at Beth David Congregation: the Synagogue at Miami’s Jewish Home; the University of Florida’s Judaica Suite at the Smathers Libraries; and his most important work, Miami Beach’s Holocaust Memorial.
