ANOHA – The Children’s World of the Jewish Museum Berlin by Olson Kundig
Alexander Zaxarov
Aug 5, 2020

Olson Kundig’s children’s museum at Jewish Museum Berlin is inspired by Noah’s Ark.

ANOHA – The Children’s World is an expansion of the Jewish Museum Berlin designed explicitly for the museum’s youngest visitors, children between the ages of three and ten. ANOHA combines the story of Noah from the Torah with interactive exhibits that teach children about caring for the environment and the importance of supporting one another and working together.

ANOHA features a new circular ark structure constructed from wood and placed within the 70,000-square-foot (6,500-square-meter) former flower market hall. Rather than mimic historic biblical ark forms, ANOHA is a modern ark inspired by two seemingly disparate sources: an ancient Sumerian text discovered a decade ago that describes a circular ark, and the ship from Stanley Kubrick’s film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
