RIBA88178
Effendi, Assad
NOTES: Destroyed in 1948, the old Hurva Synaogue was built between 1856-1864 in a Neo-Byzantine style by the Turkish architect Assad Effendi. The arch of one of the facades was reconstructed in 1976 as a symbol of the old building. There were unsuccessful schemes by Louis Kahn to replace the synagogue in the 1968-1973 and by Denys Lasdun in 1978-1982. A new building following closely the design of the old was built in 2010 by the architect Nahum Meltzer.
