The competition is now closed.

Through a competitive design process, a selection panel will identify a winning design that celebrates the spirit of modern-day Israel, and the richness and vibrancy of Jewish culture. The competition launched on February 2, 2018, and submissions were accepted until 2:00 PM EST on Monday, April 23, 2018.

Design competition and reimagining of space are made possible by a gift from Mikhail Fridman and LetterOne. Read Mikhail Fridman's bio.
