The Ark – Greenbank Synagogue, Liverpool, England

An Art Deco styled synagogue was built in the 1930’s to a radical new design. This place for Jewish worship has a stunning huge space and plenty of items left behind.

Built in the 1930’s The Ark is not a traditional synagogue, but is certainly in keeping with the Art Deco style of the era. The building incorporated a number of architectural advancements to successfully create a modernised synagogue experience. The amazing space is inviting and has an intimate feel despite being huge – there was seating for around 700 people. The light flooding in from the windows around the top creates a light and airy feel.

I thoroughly enjoyed this visit with Proj3ct M4yh3m and Kriegaffe9, and meeting Perjury Saint and Ninja Kitten on location.
