Home Edition 2020
Let’s keep the cultural life alive!
As a consequence of Covid-19, our social and cultural life has been reduced to a minimum and we all need to adapt to this unprecedented situation. Since we have a commitment with you, with the architecture scene, we came up with this new idea that is meant to lift your spirits and provide you with some genuine inspiration – at your home. We strongly believe that we all need positive input in this extraordinary situation.
Therefore, from Monday, March 23rd, onwards, each day at 7 p.m. we will be sharing one of the unique talks from the previous 35 events that we have held during the last 5 years. Each day, we will add a new video alternating daily between talks in German and English. Stay tuned!
TALK #7: Daniel Libeskind
About Daniel Libeskind
Daniel Libeskind is a US-American architect and urban planner of Polish-Jewish origin. He studied music in Israel and New York and also worked as a professional musician since he was a kind of child prodigy on the accordion. Later he opted for architecture and graduated from Cooper Union in New York and the University of Essex.
In 1989, he moved to Berlin with his family and founded the architecture studio “Studio Daniel Libeskind”. After winning the bid to rebuild the World Trade Center in February 2003, he relocated the headquarter to New York City. Studio Libeskind quickly became involved with designing and realizing a large number of commercial centers, such as Westside in Bern, the Crystals at City Center in Las Vegas, and Ko-Bogen in Düsseldorf, as well as residential towers in Busan, Singapore, Warsaw, Toronto, Manila and Sao Paulo. He lives in New York with his wife and business partner, Nina Libeskind. www.libeskind.com
AnA Rotterdam 01 – On October 3rd, 2019 we welcomed two Dutch and one international guest. Francine Houben, Sylvia Karres and Daniel Libeskind were on the stage of Kunsthal in Rotterdam.
This talk is presented with the support of BoConcept.
Their contract service specializes in providing customizable designs – such as the new Henrik Pedersen-designed Toulouse sofa system – that adds fluidity and familiarity to a range of settings. The Toulouse system is a sleek modular system with a firm seating comfort and great configurability.
In his talk, Daniel Libeskind speaks about his path being full of unexpected circumstances and his ability to adapt. These days, as we try to cope with the unexpected coronavirus situation, modular systems like BoConcept’s Toulouse and their ability to adapt to your individual needs might be the perfect fit.
Toulouse is designed to solve your needs, whether it as a place to communicate with others, relax or find some privacy. The modular nature of the Toulouse creates endless possibilities. You can find BoConcept’s brand book here: Link.
