This week the Jewish Museum Berlin is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a range of events, including a gala dinner at which German Chancellor Angela Merkel was awarded the Berlin Jewish Museum Prize for Understanding and Tolerance.

In an interesting interview at Deutsche Welle, the museum’s architect Daniel Libeskind discusses the importance of memory in architecture and the challenge of engaging memory ‘through the visceral experience.’

‘Memory’s not just a little sideline for architecture,’ he says, ‘it’s the fundamental way to orient the mind, the emotions, the soul.’
