The New Campus

A New Campus in the Heart of Jerusalem

Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design Jerusalem is currently undertaking the building of a new campus to be built in the Russian Compound in Jerusalem’s City Center: The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Campus. Bezalel's new home will bring together 2,500 students and 500 faculty members in the heart of the city. The move from the current Mount Scopus Campus, which is somewhat isolated from the urban fabric of society, will transform Jerusalem and reinvent the city as a national and international center for culture and creativity. Revitalization of the center of the city will occur through significant urban development and commercial expansion triggered by the burgeoning activity on Bezalel's new campus.

The 400,000 square foot, state of the art building designed by SANAA Architects, will house a library, galleries, workshops, classrooms, studios, offices, auditoriums, a cafeteria, and a shop. The new campus will facilitate interdepartmental collaboration among the Academy’s departments and allow for active social and cultural involvement in the city’s life.
