Daniel Libeskind

Polish-American architect Daniel Libeskind is an international figure in architecture and urban design. Informed by a deep commitment to music, philosophy, and literature, Mr. Libeskind aims to create architecture that is resonant, original, and sustainable.

An architect known for memorializing historical trauma, Mr. Libeskind serves as the lead designer for the renewed Tree of Life in Pittsburgh, transforming a site of tragedy into one of hope, remembrance, and education.

Libeskind established his architectural studio in Berlin, Germany, in 1989 after winning the competition to build the Jewish Museum in Berlin. In February 2003, Studio Libeskind moved its headquarters from Berlin to New York City to oversee the master plan for the World Trade Center redevelopment, which is being realized in Lower Manhattan today.

Daniel Libeskind’s practice is involved in designing and realizing a diverse array of urban, cultural and commercial projects around the globe. The Studio has completed buildings that range from museums and concert halls to convention centers, university buildings, hotels, shopping centers and residential towers. 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.

A moderated Q&A will follow Mr. Libeskind’s talk.

Book Sale & Signing

From 5-6 PM, White Whale Bookstore, a family-owned bookstore in Bloomfield, will have copies of Mr. Libeskind’s most recent book, Edge of Order, available for purchase and signing during a reception before the lecture in the Connan Room of the Jared L. Cohon Center.
