Join us for a public lecture and book signing with Daniel Libeskind. He is the founder and principal of Studio Daniel Libeskind, founded in Berlin in 1989 and now operating in New York City.

An international figure in architectural practice and urban design, Libeskind’s projects include major cultural institutions, universities, hotels, commercial centers, and residential work.

Born in Lódz, Poland, in 1946, Libeskind was a virtuoso musician before studying architecture. He has taught and lectured at universities all over the world, received numerous awards, and designed world-renowned projects, including the master plan for the World Trade Center in New York and the Jewish Museum Berlin.

Daniel Libeskind was Head of Architecture at Cranbrook Academy of Art from 1978-1985. His new book, “Edge of Order,” delves into Libeskind’s creative process and inspirations. A book signing will precede the lecture where books will be available for sale.
