Completes Museum Consulting
Auerbach Glasow French
and Auerbach Pollock Friedlander collaborated with the design
team of Studio Daniel Libeskind and WRNS Studio on the recently
opened Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco providing
architectural lighting design and theatre consulting services.
The new museum is located just north of Moscone Center and
the Yerba Buena Esplanade in San Francisco's South of
Market/Convention Center district.
Auerbach Glasow French designed
the architectural lighting for the interior public areas,
event spaces, galleries, education center, and administrative
offices. It also was retained to light the inaugural exhibits.
Auerbach Pollock Friedlander collaborated
on the development of the museum's public
assembly space, the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Hall --
a multi-use meeting and banquet facility with a telescopic
seating system to accommodate lectures, media presentations,
and arts events for smaller audiences. The plan relies
on a telescopic seating system that requires little more
than 30 minutes to set up, allowing the room to be converted
from an open plan meeting space.
