'the use of pattern and texture is popular, but will have longevity. It's funny how it's radical to use decoration these days'

de Metz Forbes Knight's proposal for a 350-seat synagogue in Golders Green takes the form of a top-lit plinth building with a rooftop garden for al fresco weddings. The filigree pattern of the enclosing wall is generated from the timber tracery in the ceiling of the old synagogue at Przedborz, Poland, which was built in the 18th century and burned by the Nazis in 1939.

The synagogue will serve a community of Eastern European survivors of the Holocaust and their families.
