Daniel Libeskind

Daniel 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 Daniel Libeskind moved its headquarters from Berlin to New York City (USA) 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. His commitment to expanding the scope of architecture reflects his profound interest in philosophy, art, literature and music. Fundamental to his approach is the notion that buildings are crafted with perceptible human energy and must address the cultural context in which they are built. He has received numerous awards and designed world-renowned projects including: the Jewish Museum in Berlin, the Denver Art Museum, the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, the Military History Museum in Dresden, the residential complex Reflections at Keppel Bay (Singapore), Run Run Shaw Creative Media Center (Hong Kong) and the masterplan for Grand Zero among others. Studio Libeskind has offices based in New York (USA), Zürich (Switzerland) and Milan (Italy).
