As an international architect and designer, DANIEL LIBESKIND, B.Arch M.A. BDA AIA, is committed to expanding the scope of architecture to involve philosophy, art, literature and music. Fundamental to Libeskind’s philosophy is the notion that buildings are crafted with perceptible human energy, and that they address the greater cultural context in which they are built.
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 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. In addition to the New York headquarters, Studio Libeskind has European offices based in Zürich, Switzerland (Architekt Daniel Libeskind) and Milan, Italy (Libeskind Architettura & Libeskind Design.)
Last year Studio Daniel Libeskind celebrated the completion of the City Life residences, part of the redevelopment of the historic Fiera Milano Fairgrounds in Milan, and Kö-Bogen, an office and retail complex in Düsseldorf. The Studio has several projects under construction including three high-rise residential developments: The L Tower in Toronto, Zlota in Warsaw, and Vitra in Sao Paulo; two projects in Asia, the Zhang ZhiDong and Modern Industrial Museum in Wuhan and Corals at Keppel Bay in Singapore; as well as the Centre des Congrès in Mons, Belgium.
Over the years, Daniel Libeskind has been fortunate to be commissioned by a number of international clients to develop a diverse array of products, bespoke furniture, and interior designs. To this end, he chose to establish Libeskind Design in Milan, the international center for design, with unparalleled artisans, care for detail and connections to the broader world of contemporary architecture and art. The product designs reflect Libeskind’s interest in the world of everyday objects, and the stories they tell about the people who use them.
