Studio Libeskind is involved in designing and realising a diverse array of urban, cultural and commercial projects around the globe. The Studio is a collaboration of architects and designers that believe architecture is a practice of optimism and approaches the projects with the attitude that to make great places, one must believe in the future, but also remember the past.
Studio Libeskind’s architecture emerges from the idea that a building should be expressive and reflect contemporary life, with innovation being at the core of their design process. The Studio believes that bold design must be realised with sustainable technology and strongly believes that the art of architecture lies in creating a maximum impact within the constraints of budgets and functionality. By their own words: “We know from experience that great architecture comes from working with great clients; however, architecture is a public art and we hold ourselves accountable not only to the client, but to the communities, and cities in which we build.”
Daniel and his partner Nina Libeskind established Studio Libeskind in Berlin, Germany, in 1989 after winning the competition to build the Jewish Museum Berlin. In 2003, the Studio moved its headquarters to New York City when Daniel Libeskind was selected as the master planner for the World Trade Center redevelopment.
