Architecture as Experience – Daniel Libeskind

Complete video at:

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.

    Libeskind doesn´t construct a tall building, only the Jewish Museum at Berlin.

    This Dick builds buildings like a 3 year old kid

    I personally cannot comprehend those who cannot appreciate the integrity of Someone like Daniel Libeskind's work.
    He represents the meaningful identity in architecture, and the rigorous process he uses to reach his designs is what lacks in so many other buildings today.
    You don't have to like the aesthetic outcome of his work- but to critisise the skills and intelligence of this man is just plain ignorant.

    Daniel Libeskind's work is very inspirational and philosophical in a way. I am glad that he is commissioned for the 9/11 reconstruction

    I'm glad we have people like Daniel Libeskind who believe in democracy in architecture and adding meaning and open mindedness to the buildings we design.

    He builds around feelings around emotions, he makes that the building has a meaning for the people could understand the past, he connects the past with our present, he does not build a simple building just to make it beatiful.
