Space of Encounter: The Architecture of Daniel Libeskind


Space of Encounter: The Architecture of Daniel Libeskind. Barbican Art Gallery, London, England, 2005

Space of Encounter is the first UK survey exhibition of the inspirational architect since his rise to international stardom with the opening of the Jewish Museum, Berlin.

It explores Libeskind’s unique architectural vision through sixteen key projects. Previously unseen architectural models, drawings, plans and elevations are combined with film and slide projections in a dramatic exhibition design which was conceived in close collaboration with Studio Libeskind. Highlights include a specially commissioned illuminated model of Libeskind’s master plan for the re-development of the World Trade Center site.  Steeped in narrative and metaphor Daniel Libeskind’s designs are proof that buildings can be much more than functional shells and instead can stir a wide array of emotional and intellectual responses.
