THE HERODIAN QUARTER

Jerusalem 2009

The Herodian Quarter – the Wohl Archaeology Museum, is the largest roofed archeological site in Israel (about 2,700 square meters). This compound had been a Jewish neighborhood overlooking the Temple from the final days of the Second Temple period. The Herodian Quarter comprises remains of palatial homes in the Upper City, the much-visible remains of homes and lifestyle of the neighborhood's residents including numerous ritual baths, crafted vessels, and art works such as mosaics and wall paintings.

 

Our design makes a significant change to the museum display, making it worthy of the next decade to come. The new display offers the visitor an understanding, and moreover, a full-scale experience of the Herodian daily life, from the outset of the archaeological findings in this unique site.

The new display includes elaborate audio-visual components, using personal stories, accompanying the visitors and creating for them a powerful and exciting voyage through the site, a path for participating in the archaeological evidence. The new plan is taking advantage of the most cutting edge technology in the field; by music, lighting, video, audio as well as large-scale models and graphics. Groups and individual visitors are able to engage with the exhibition differently, while the display also caters for diverse visitors, of all ages and origins.
