Celebrated architect Daniel Libeskind discusses his views of architecture as a spiritual and aesthetic experience, citing the examples of two sites he designed: the rebuilding of New York City’s World Trade Center, and San Francisco’s Contemporary Jewish Museum.
When we build things – especially beautiful things – we do so with the expectation and the wish that they will last, and through them, we will last.
Daniel Libeskind explores this idea of architecture-as-hope and elaborates on his creative process and the opening of his most recent project, San Francisco’s new Contemporary Jewish Museum – The Commonwealth Club of California
Daniel Libeskind is an American Jewish architect of Berlin’s Jewish Museum and San Francisco’s Contemporary Jewish Museum. Libeskind made waves when, in 2003, he won the competition to rebuild the World Trade Center.
