Givat Ram Synagogue

Year Built: 1957

Location: Jerusalem, Israel

Architect: David Resnick

The Givatram synagogue almost looks other-worldly. A white, slightly amorphous dome with rounded windows sits almost like a mushroom on the ground. But therein lies the beauty in Resnick's creation. It is meant to look organic, natural, and imperfect, as though it just settled there one day.
