Daniel Libeskind Lecture

Event Type: Lecture
Facility: School of Music (MUS)
Presented By: College of The Arts
Description: 
An international figure in architecture and urban design, Daniel Libeskind is renowned for his ability to evoke cultural memory in buildings. Informed by a deep commitment to music, philosophy, literature, 
and poetry, Mr. Libeskind aims to create architecture that is resonant, unique and sustainable.

In 1989, Mr. Libeskind won the international competition to build the Jewish Museum in Berlin. A series of influential museum commissions followed, including the Felix Nussbaum Haus, Osnabrück; 
Imperial War Museum North, Manchester; Denver Art Museum; Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco; Danish Jewish Museum; Royal Ontario Museum; and the Military History Museum, 
Dresden.

In 2003, Studio Libeskind won another historic competition - to create a master plan for the rebuilding of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan.  In addition to a towering spire of 1,776 feet, the 
Libeskind design study proposed a complex program encompassing a memorial, underground museum, the integration of the slurry wall, special transit hub and four office towers.  This plan is 
being realized today.

Upon his move to New York, Studio Libeskind quickly became involved with designing and realizing 
a large number of commercial centers, such as Westside in Bern, the Crystals at City Center in Las Vegas, and Ko-Bogen in Düsseldorf, as well as residential towers in Busan, Singapore, Warsaw, 
Toronto, Manila and Sao Paulo.

As Principal Design Architect for Studio Libeskind, Mr. Libeskind speaks widely on the art of architecture in universities and professional summits. His architecture and ideas have been the 
subject of many articles and exhibitions, influencing the field of architecture and the development of cities and culture.
