Architecture | POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews

December 21, 2014

Some grey, rainy day shots of the exterior of the museum, which had recently officially opened but was unfortunately closed the day I finally had a chance to stop by. I would have really wanted to see the interior of this stunning building as well as the exhibits.

POLIN comes from the Hebrew word for Poland and relates to the legend of the first arrival of the Jews to Poland; the Hebrew and Latin letters for this word are stencilled into the glass panels on the face of the building. Meanwhile, the main entrance is reminiscent of the Hebrew letter Taw, which is the starting letter of the Hebrew words for culture and history.
