Amos Gitai sets up Israel's first architecture museum in memory of his father
Famed filmmaker dedicates Haifa space to his father Munio Gitai Weinraub, a 'Bauhaus refugee' who single-handedly changed the city's landscape.
Last Friday, a group of architects from the center of the country made their way up Mount Carmel to the new Munio Gitai Weinraub Museum of Architecture. The term museum is a bit big for the modest, 120-square-meter space, but it will fill a cultural vacuum - the lack of an architecture museum in Israel. The Weinraub is the first.
