Jewish Academy planned in Frankfurt

First Prize and Planning Contract for Turkali Architekten

Turkali Architekten have won a two-tier multiple comission and received the planning contract for the new construction of the Jewish Academy. The academy is to be positioned at the southern tip of the Frankfurt Culture Campus close to Frankfurt Messe. The demanding spacial arrangement of the institution will be realized by constructing a new building and integrating a neighboring professors' villa.

In the words of the President of the Central Council of Jews, Dr. Josef Schuster, the future academy shall contribute to a tolerant, religion-friendly, pluralistic society and shall bring Jewish perspectives into the public discourse.
