Daniel Libeskind's Jewish Museum is the finest example of emotional architecture I have experienced. The building is sharp, disorienting and harsh-meant to be evocative of the journey of European Jews during the holocaust. "Highlights" include the holocaust tower- a lightless, prison-like room that is deeply emotional, upsetting and thought-provoking. After that, wobble through the Garden of Exile, a grid of concrete pillars that is also maze-like and disorienting. Also worth seeing is the Memory void, where you can walk on the art installation of steel faces- the sound is chilling.
This building is the reason we went to Berlin and it did not disappoint. The building itself is so thoughtful and emotional, and the content equally heavy and insightful. Plan some decompression time afterwards, it's exhausting!
