Studio Daniel Libeskind Architects

The architecture studio started in 1990 in Berlin. The Jewish Museum Berlin – won in 1989 – was the springboard.

The most influential building by Studio Daniel Libeskind to date is surely the Berlin Jewish Museum: it’s approach to the facade – with angular slots – and merging of wall, roof and floor (again using angles) was fairly original. Although the studio had done similar smaller projects – and angular architecture has been achieved by other architects such as Eisenman, Fuksas, Hadid, and, to a lesser extent people like Alsop and Tschumi – this felt new and challenging. The materials assisted this impression: compared to say the Wexner Centre the Jewish Museum seemed to have a dark sinister side – irrespective of its content and reason for being.

Daniel Libeskind is an American citizen.
