Frank Gehry’s Museum of Tolerance

Gehry has designed a Museum of Tolerance which will be built in Jerusalem. “In the culminating segment of a film made for the Center’s facilities in Los Angeles and New York, for example, a middle-aged man says: ‘Tolerance is based on a conviction there’s room here for everybody.’ That definition is a profoundly American one, reflecting the reality of a nation with vast space and no existential threats. It sounds irrelevant, even ludicrous, in an Israeli-Palestinian context. In this country, almost no one believes that there is enough land or political power for everybody to share equitably.” From the NY Times.
