Sketch designs for the unbuilt Hurva Synagogue, Jerusalem: more finished version of the concept sketch

NOTES: This was a scheme by Denys Lasdun to replace the old Hurva Synagogue, a nineteenth century building by the Turkish architect Assad Effendi, which had been destroyed by bombing in 1948. From 1978-1982 he prepared designs, but none were accepted. This drawing was in a bundle dated May1981 but appears to be a much earlier design, possibly dating from early 1979, and representing a more finished version of Denys Lasdun's concept sketch, published in Architectural Review (in 1983).
