The dominant design element of the Munich synagogue is the cladding of the glass cube with a specially manufactured bronze spiral mesh. These mesh spirals were broadened in such a way that equilateral triangles were formed.

The new synagogue sits at the heart of Munich's Jewish Center, built in line with plans by the architectural firm Wandel Höfer Lorch + Hirsch from Saarbrücken.

The textile shell covers a total of 1400 m², divided into 16 façade elements with the dimensions 11 m x 4.40 m or 6.60 m and 70 roof elements measuring 2.20 m x 2.20 m adjoined to form 14 m long elements. The façade elements were fixed to the steel substructure at the top by means of flat profiles integrated in the mesh. In the center they were screwed to a bronze pipe construction and tensioned against the substructure at the bottom using clevis terminals and clamping tubes.
