About Speaker

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.

Event text

Premiere! The event series Architects, not Architecture will hold its first edition in The Netherlands. Every architect knows famous buildings – but do you know the people, who designed and built them? Who are they and how did they become what they are today? You will find the answers, and a lot more, at the Kunsthal Rotterdam on October 3.

The concept is always the same and has already inspired hundreds of people in different cities. Architects, not Architecture or “AnA” – as the name suggests – provides a glimpse on great personalities of architecture. The event series is not about the projects of the architects, but about them, their professional backgrounds and formative individual experiences that shaped the projects we all know. This provides new perspectives and inspires on a more personal level. Come to Kunsthal and discover a new kind of event series.

On October 3, two relevant Dutch architects and one special guest will talk about their personal experiences and important creative periods in their lives and, as always at “AnA“, not a word may be lost about their projects:

The three of them are well-known for their significant work. The Polish born and New York based Daniel Libeskind is characterized by a narrative language of forms. He uses elements that explicitly refer to extra-architectural content and thus have a different meaning in context. He recently publish his biographical book, which will be sold at the event, where the attendees will also have the opportunity to get a signed copy. Francine Houben graduated with cum laude honours from the Delft University of Technology and founded Mecanoo architecten, which has been grown into a prominent Dutch architecture practice. She bases her work on precise analysis coupled with an intuition built over three decades and interweaves social, technical, playful and human aspects of space-making together in order to create a unique solution to each architectural challenge. For Sylvia Karres, intuition and a ‘sense of place’ play an important role in her output. She tackles a variety of tasks in the public domain with her offices, both at home and abroad. These three all have a different focus in their work, which makes the evening even more exciting, but they all have in common that their approach to architecture goes far beyond its limits.

This event is supported by our partners BoConceptJUNGKUBUS and Object Carpet.
