Two Museums and a Garden


An exhibit titled “The Work of Daniel Libeskind: Two Museums and a Garden,” looking at some of the most renowned projects by the internationally acclaimed architect who is teaching at the School of Architecture this year, will be on display Oct. 25-Nov. 19 in the school’s Main Gallery, 180 York St.

The gallery exhibition will be a site-specific installation featuring drawings, photographs and models of two of Libeskind’s most significant recent projects: the newly completed Jewish Museum in Berlin and the Felix Nussbaum Museum in Osnabrueck,Germany. A major component of the installation will be a full-scale model of part of the E.T.A. Hoffman Garden that Libeskind designed for the Berlin Jewish Museum, complete with 17 concrete columns topped with living plants.
