This is the most important Peter Eisenman building since the Wexner Center was completed in 1989. The building weaves and warps, rising out of the ground using topographical form as the basis of the design.

Holocaust Memorial
This is probably the most well known Peter Eisenman design. Also known as the Holocaust Memorial (German: Holocaust-Mahnmal), this is a memorial in Berlin to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. It consists of a 19,000 m2 (4.7-acre) site covered with 2,711 concrete slabs or “stelae”, arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field. The stelae vary in height and are organized in rows, 54 of them going north–south, and 87 heading east–west at right angles but set slightly askew. An attached underground “Place of Information” holds the names of approximately 3 million Jewish Holocaust victims, obtained from the museum Yad Vashem, Jerusalem, Israel.


Yale School of Architecture Exhibition, New Haven, Connecticut, USA
Aug 20 – Oct 27 2012
Yale School of Architecture Exhibition
The 2012-13 season at the Yale School of Architecture Gallery opens with Palladio Virtuel. The exhibition presents a groundbreaking new analysis of the work of Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio by Peter Eisenman, renowned New York architect and Charles Gwathmey Professor in Practice at Yale. It represents the culmination of ten years of study of Palladio’s villas by Eisenman, adding an important contribution to the sixteenth-century master’s already robust legacy.
