The Tikva Jewish Museum in Lisbon, Portugal, will receive a modern redesign by NY-based Studio Libeskind that will feature a clean white-and-blue esthetic overtop angled geometric outlines.
The futuristic building will be made up of five separate interior segments that will be brought together by the slanting walls that will adorn its exterior. The Tikva Jewish Museum's redesign will make use of modern materials like white plaster and blue ceramics to achieve its futuristic look. Paying homage to the local architecture, both sides of the museum's walls will be finished in Azulejos, a kind of traditional ceramic tilework that hails from Portugal.
The Tikva Jewish Museum will host a number of exhibitions–some temporary and some permanent–as well as rooms dedicated to lecturing, researching, and learning. The roof will be set at variable heights, breaking up the building's silhouette and offering pop-up spaces for restaurants, solar panels, and green installations.
