Daniel Libeskind has become one of architecture’s most public ambassadors, guided by a simple yet radical belief: with an open mind, everyone is capable of not only understanding architecture, but also designing it. He believes there are countless lessons to be shared between architecture and other creative pursuits, including music, visual arts, and literature.
In Libeskind’s own practice, everything from Greek mythology to Emily Dickinson to the Marx Brothers have profoundly shaped the way he thinks about buildings and cities. Libeskind opens the door to his unique creative process and his methods for discovering new directions in his work. He tells the stories behind his most important projects accompanied with a rich array of visuals, including original sketches, plans, and photographs. He also reveals how his unlikely rise- from a child born to Holocaust survivors in a Polish homeless shelter, to a teenager in the Bronx, to an avant-garde academic- still shapes his boundary pushing work at Studio Libeskind.
With a history of provocative proposals, he has emerged as the creative force behind innovative landmarks such as the Jewish Museum Berlin and New York’s World Trade Center master plan. Libeskind founded Studio Libeskind in 1989 with his wife and business partner, Nina, and is its principal design architect. They reside in New York City.
Following the presentation will be a book signing and, ticketed separately, a wine reception in the museum’s adjacent sculpture garden.
