Pinhas Eshet, Zvi Aldouby | Proposals for the Monument for the Holocaust and the Revival of Israel, Tel Aviv

In 1972 a closed competition took place for the design of a monument for the Holocaust and the revival of Israel to be erected in Malchei Israel (now Rabin) Square. Among submitted proposals were a proposal by Pinhas Eshet and another by Zvi Aldouby. Both radically different from one another in form and intention. Yigal Tumarkin’s proposal was eventually selected, not without disagreement, and erected several years later. The exhibited images and historical texts invite us to imagine what kind of a different environmental experience the unrealised options could have created.
