  • This event has passed.

In this conversation, architect Daniel Libeskind discusses his uncommon background and global perspective while exploring both ideas about tragedy and hope, and the way in which architecture can memorialize—and reshape—human experience. Many of the inquiries and principles explored radiate from Libeskind’s book, Breaking Ground, which invites the reader to see architecture—and the larger world—through a new perspective.

Daniel Libeskind is an American architect who has designed many prominent and celebrated buildings, including the Jewish Museum in Berlin, the Denver Art Museum, the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester, the Jewish Museum in Copenhagen, the Wohl Centre at the Bar-Ilan University in Tel Aviv, as well as many more commercial and residential projects around the world. In 2003, Libeskind won the competition for the master plan to rebuild the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan.
