Centre for Human Dignity, Jerusalem

Creating the Centre of Human Dignity in Jerusalem

The visionary Centre for Human Dignity was designed by Frank Gehry to house a conference centre, library, theatre and museum as well as a separate children’s museum. HKD worked closely with the architectural team on the concept development of the museum components.

The Museum was devised to tell the story of the Jewish diaspora while a Tolerance Workshop would house a suite of exhibits allowing visitors to examine issues such as Rights, Responsibilities, Press Freedom and Governance either independently or within groups.
