There is no architect more identified with the Weizmann Institute than Erich Mendelsohn. Though he designed only four of the over 100 buildings on the campus, he left his indelible mark both on the Weizmann Institute and on Israeli architecture. His first building in Israel – a house for Dr. Chaim Weizmann, the first president of the Weizmann Institute, who would become the first President of the State of Israel – is an iconic structure that has been restored and is open to visitors. The last he built in Israel, the Daniel Wolf Building, is also on the Weizmann campus
So it is fitting that the Israeli opening of a film on Mendelsohn’s life would take place at the Weizmann Institute.
