Gehry Withdraws from Jerusalem Project

New, 5 comments

Frank Gehry's been racking up jobs, but here's one he's stepping away from: "Award-winning architect Frank Gehry announced yesterday that he was withdrawing from the Museum of Tolerance project in Jerusalem. The museum, being built by the Simon Wiesenthal Foundation, has drawn controversy because it is being put up on the grounds of an old Muslim cemetery in the Mamilla neighborhood. Other architects working on the project, however, say Gehry's resignation was not related to the protests." [Haaretz]
