Daniel Libeskind Designing Museum Of Humans In Kenya

The project was commissioned by conservationist Richard Leakey, whose fossil discoveries have helped reveal how humankind has evolved. “The museum — titled ‘ngaren’ — will be the first center of its kind to present research, discovery, and exploration of more than two million years of human history and the origins of our universe from evolution, biodiversity, and overpopulation, to war, disease, and climate change.” – DesignBoom

Daniel Libeskind unveils climate change-inspired sculptures at Paleis Het Loo

This spring, tapestry-like shrubbery and geometric flowerbeds won’t be the only highlights at the Het Loo Palace’s Dutch Baroque gardens. The palatial grounds in Apeldoorn, Netherlands recently opened a new climate change-inspired exhibit, ‘The Garden of Earthly Worries,’ featuring four monumental art installations designed by Polish-American architect Daniel Libeskind. The exhibit showcases the first-ever contemporary installations on show in the gardens of Paleis Het Loo, which dates back to ...

Architectural Profile: MO Museum by Daniel Libeskind

Opened in late October 2018, the MO Museum in Vilnius, Lithuania is the newest completed project by Studio Libeskind, an architecture firm headed by internationally recognized architect Daniel Libeskind. Libeskind is an inspiration to me because he—like other great visionaries—was accused of imagining “unbuildable” buildings. Hence his first project was not realized until Libeskind was 52 years of age. So many cultures (including the United States) and subcultures (including the A&D community) ...

Art on the Moon

The NY times recently asked eight artists what art projects they would do if they could fly to the Moon. Here’s Kara Walker’s answer: Gil Scott Heron wrote that famous poem, “Whitey on the Moon”: “The man just upped my rent last night / Cause whitey’s on the moon / No hot water, no toilets, no lights / But whitey’s on the moon.” I got thinking about a moon colony, which plenty of people have talked about pretty seriously over the years. So what I’d do is this: For every female child born on Ea...

Daniel Libeskind Collection for Loloey

Architect Daniel Libeskind created a limited edition rug collection for luxury Italian brand Loloey, taking his fractal geometric shapes from three dimension to two—and the result is striking. Based on “disorder and arbitrariness” that unveils a paradoxical logic beneath a structure “foreshadowed in the seductive depths of chaos,” the Daniel Libeskind Collection is arresting from all angles. Like his buildings (some of my favorites include his extension to the Denver Art Museum and The Ascent ...

Behold the “Book Wheel”: The Renaissance Invention Created to Make Books Portable & Help Scholars Study (1588)

Devotees of print may object, but we readers of the 21st century enjoy a great privilege in our ability to store a practically infinite number of digitized books on our computers. What's more, those computers have themselves shrunk down to such compactness that we can carry them around day and night without discomfort. This would hardly have worked just forty years ago, when books came only in print and a serious computer could still fill a room. The paper book may remain reasonably competitive...

This new Berlin apartment building literally purifies the city's air

Daniel Libeskind‘s first residential project in Berlin is a spectacular faceted building that literally purifies the air. Sapphire is clad in geometric stoneware tiles coated in a layer of titanium dioxide that breaks down dirt and grime when exposed to the sun’s UV rays. The crystalline facade of the building is dominated by angular windows and canted walls that create balconies and intimate outdoor nooks that enhance the quality of the units. Each of the apartments has a unique plan with hig...

A National History Museum For The Kurds

They've been called the world's largest nation without a state: roughly 30 million or more souls in the mountains where modern-day Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran meet. And of course there's not yet any official museum to document the Kurds' long history. Architect Daniel Libeskind and journalist Gwynne Roberts are working with the regional government of Iraqi Kurdistan to develop just such an institution - an even more challenging task than you'd think.

Daniel Libeskind: Tribute to New York

"If you took the whole world and collapsed it into one little ball, you'd find it here, in this city." Daniel Libeskind, world-renowned architect behind the new World Trade Center site, gives tribute to his city in this short and colourful video. "There is no typical New Yorker ... it's a city of atypical people," says Daniel Libeskind who came to New York City at the age of 13 and saw both the building and the collapse of the World Trade Center's Twin Towers. In this video he discusses the tol...

The Rise Of The New, Spiritual Museum

“Today’s shift from particular religions to a generalised spirituality is a global trend noted by architects as well as theologians—Daniel Libeskind has spoken about it since his design for Berlin’s Jewish Museum in the 1990s. It is most evident in the way the iconic museum employs connotations to nature and the cosmos.”

The new World Trade Center could have been a 70-story interconnected ‘city in the sky'

Nearly 15 years after the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, the area of downtown Manhattan that was destroyed is nearly rebuilt. The soaring Freedom Tower now stands taller than any other building in the city, and the cascading memorials sit dark and solemn in memory of those who lost their lives. The design of the area includes five skyscrapers of varying heights, each with gray-blue reflective glass. At their feet sits the memorial and museum; Santiago Calatrava’s skeletal trans...

Tiny Lithuania apartment boasts a space-saving split personality

The owner was looking to transform his existing apartment to accommodate two people, but remain open and spacious. The architects met this request by splitting the apartment into two parts, with an open-plan main living area bathed in natural light.

5 buildings around the world that memorialize tragic losses of life

1. Light and darkness contrast in Daniel Libeskind's Jewish Museum Berlin One of the most moving memorial buildings ever created, Daniel Liebeskind's Jewish Museum in Berlin, utilizes architecture to take visitors on a journey through some of humanity's darkest moments during the Holocaust, when millions of people were murdered by the Nazis.

Daniel Libeskind's Secret Museum of the Kurds

Seven years ago an intermediary for the prime minister of Iraqi Kurdistan, Nechirvan Barzani, asked the architect Daniel Libeskind to design a museum. It was to be built in the autonomous region's capital city, Erbil, in the northern part of Iraq, and it would be the first, Barzani told him through the intermediary, to tell the story of his people, an ethnic minority that's survived decades of violence and oppression.
