Text description provided by the architects. The Polonsky Academy of Advanced Studies for the Humanities and Social Sciences is part of the Van Leer Institute campus in Jerusalem. The building is situated on a cliff facing South towards the Jerusalem Theater.

Its Northern facade faces the central garden courtyard, which acts as the 'heart' of the campus. The low-set horizontal appearance of the building integrates with the dimensions and design characteristics of its existing surrounding buildings which are comprised of opaque stone facades facing the city and glass facades facing the central inner garden.
