An international figure in architecture and urban design, the architect Daniel Libeskind aims to create architecture that is resonant, original, and sustainable; he is renowned for his ability to evoke cultural memory in buildings of equilibrium-defying contemporaneity.
Mr. Libeskind established his architectural studio in Berlin, Germany, in 1989 after winning the competition to build the Jewish Museum in Berlin. In 2003, Studio Libeskind moved its headquarters from Berlin to New York City when Daniel Libeskind was selected as the master planner for the World Trade Center redevelopment. Daniel Libeskind’s practice is involved in designing and realizing a diverse array of urban, cultural and commercial projects internationally.
You have to get inspiration from life, and working with light is no exception. When we inherit a space, albeit large or quite small, we can transform it, which in turn completely transforms our feelings, emotions, and sense of the world. The beauty of design is that it is always rewarding, especially when it is aesthetic and exhibits social ideas.
Good design has to use efficient and sustainable materials to endure and create a heritage, and above all, it must have something specifically strange about it. Light is probably the most mysterious dimension of reality, and working with it is fascinating, complex and dynamic. Designing illumination is, well, a great joy, and I can say, I have been very lucky.
