Daniel Libeskind and the Contemporary Jewish Museum
New Jewish Architecture From Berlin to San FranciscoBook - 2008
An internationally renowned architect and lecturer, Daniel Libeskind is one of the world's most influential figures in architecture. Best-known for his first project, the Jewish Museum in Berlin, Libeskind's work resonates with Jewish history, as is reflected in projects such as the Felix Nussbaum Haus (Germany) and the Danish Jewish Museum (Copenhagen). His innovative design for the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco became his first commission in North America, and the spectacular building is now completed. With breathtaking photography, insightful essays, and an illuminating text by the architect, this volume is the first to examine Libeskind's Jewish museums and to feature the architect's vibrant new building in California.
