Edge of Order

Description

Edge of Order is an exploration of Daniel Libeskind’s creative process and the influences on some of his most famous projects. The book proceeds from Libeskind’s belief that with an open mind, every individual is not only capable of understanding architecture, but also designing it. He draws on his own journey to open the door to his creative process and his methods for discovering new directions in his work. With this remarkable marriage of text and design, rich with sketches, notes, plans, and photographs, Libeskind shares the stories behind, and inspiration for, a selection of his projects—among them the National Holocaust Monument in Ottawa, Canada; a high-rise residential development in Singapore; the Ogden Center for Fundamental Physics in Durham, England; and the extension to the Denver Art Museum.
