Architect Daniel Libeskind’s buildings are physical expressions of humanity’s capacity to move beyond world conflicts and events, to find unity and common ground while paying homage to the past.
His design of the Jewish Museum in Berlin is proof of this concept. The museum’s zinc facade and other elements combine a visual and spatial experience rich with history while highlighting an overall sense of harmony from the seemingly disparate parts.
Mr. Libeskind’s many other designs include the Royal Ontario Museum, the Danish Jewish Museum, the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco and more. He is the master plan architect for the World Trade Center site.
Copies of the book Breaking Ground: An Immigrant’s Journey from Poland to Ground Zero will be available for purchase and signing. Moderated by David Homan, Executive Director of the America-Israel Cultural Foundation.
