This Islamic shrine is located on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem. It was initially completed in 691–92 CE at the order of Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik during the Second Fitna on the site of the Second Jewish Temple, destroyed during the Roman Siege of Jerusalem in 70 CE.

The original dome collapsed in 1015 and was rebuilt in 1022–23. The Dome of the Rock is in its core one of the oldest extant works of Islamic architecture.

The Dome of the Rock has inspired the architecture of a number of buildings. These include the octagonal Church of St. Giacomo in Italy, the Mausoleum of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent in Istanbul, the octagonal Moorish Revival style Rumbach Street Synagogue in Budapest, and the New Synagogue in Berlin, Germany.

It was long believed by Christians that the Dome of the Rock echoed the architecture of the Temple in Jerusalem, as can be seen in Raphael’s The Marriage of the Virgin and in Perugino’s Marriage of the Virgin.

The new building will host classrooms, studios, offices, two auditoriums, an operational area and various workshops, addressing Bezalel’s need for breaking the traditional separation of the academy’s eight departments and allowing for a more active social and cultural involvement in the city’s life. The site of the new campus is located in the Russian Compound between the Holy Trinity Cathedral and the Museum of Underground Prisoners.

The museum was founded in 1965 using the concept of a cluster of pavilions set on a hill, like an Arabian village. James Snyder oversaw a $100m renewal project using Jamie Carpenter to design new entry buildings and a ‘Route of Passage’ underground access ramp and local architects Zvi and Meira to rework the existing galleries.
