Daniel Libeskind is an international figure in architecture and urban design. World renowned for his provocative proposals, he has emerged as the creative force behind innovative landmarks such as the Jewish Museum Berlin, the Denver Art Museum's Hamilton Building, the Royal Ontario Museum’s Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, and New York’s World Trade Center master plan.
Libeskind also has become one of architecture’s most public ambassadors, guided by a simple yet radical belief: that with an open mind, everyone is capable not only of understanding architecture, but also designing it. He believes there are countless lessons to be shared between architecture and other creative pursuits, including music, visual art, and literature.
In this talk Libeskind opens the door to his unique creative process and his methods for discovering new directions in his work. He will share the stories behind his most important projects and 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.
Doors open at 5:30 pm, talk at 6 pm.
A book signing will be held following the talk. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
