Aedes Architecture Forum: Dialogue Concert Series #3

Chamberworks is a set of 28 drawings created by Daniel Libeskind during the years in which he served as the head of the Architecture Department at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan in the early 1980s. The drawings explore the relationship between music and architecture. Christopher Dell conceives these as “a strategic performative approach to work constructively, and non-arbitrarily with indeterminacy.

Not Square: The Frederic C. Hamilton Building at the Denver Art Museum

A catalog of the the first ten years of exhibits of the Frederic C. Hamilton Building, Not Square explores the impact of Daniel Libeskind’s revolutionary design on the curation of art. The book details how initial skepticism of the utility of the interior space’s complex geometry was proven wrong as the building has played host to various forms of art that–regardless of temporality or origin–have found a home in the Frederic C. Hamilton Building.

Edge of Order

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.
