Riassunto: Born in communist Poland to Jewish Holocaust survivors, Daniel Libeskind has designed iconic buildings around the world - including the Jewish Museum Berlin, the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester and the V&A 'Spiral'. Now he has been chosen as the Master Plan architect for New York's World Trade Center reconstruction - a city of which he has long become, since his boyhood emigration, an adopted son. This is a book about the adventure life can offer each of us if we seize it, and about the powerful forces of tragedy, memory and hope. For Daniel Libeskind, life's adventure has been through architecture, which he has found has the power to reshape human experience. Although often relating to the past, his buildings are about the future. This memoir of one man's journey brings together history, personal experience, our physical environment and a fresh international vision. The world is painfully aware of the World Trade Center tragedy; here are ideas that could form the germ of our emotional, creative and practical response to it - a response that could have truly positive implications for humanity.
About the Author: Daniel Libeskind is a renowned international figure in architecture and urban design. Born in Poland in 1946, he became an American citizen in 1965. A gifted musician in his childhood, he first studied music in Israel then architecture in New York and at Essex University. His practice in public architecture began with the building of the Jewish Museum Berlin, completed to great acclaim in 2001. In 2002, the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester was opened to the public. He lives with his wife Nina and three children in New York City.
