In the architecture world, few designers can claim to have a more clearly-defined style than Daniel Libeskind. Much of Libeskind’s work is instantly recognizable for its angular forms, intersecting planes, and frequent use of diagonally-sliced windows, a style that he has used to great effect in museums and memorials – but which seems equally adaptable to conference centers, skyscrapers and shopping malls.
Not long after completing high school, in 1965, Libeskind became a naturalized American citizen. That same year, he chose to study architecture, enrolling at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. Libeskind told Cathleen McGuigan of Newsweek that his pursuit of architecture seemed like a natural progression, as it is a field that “combines so many of my interests. Mathematics, painting, arts. It’s about people, space, music.” When the World Trade Center was under construction, Libeskind used to wander down to the site, as he related to Devin Leonard of Fortune magazine: “We used to come down here at lunch when the trade center was being built. It was the most incredible building in New York.”
Studio Libeskind is involved in designing and realizing a diverse array of urban, cultural and commercial projects around the globe.  Our Studio is a collaboration of architects and designers that believe architecture is a practice of optimism. We approach our projects with the attitude that to make great places, you must believe in the future, but also remember the past.
Daniel and his partner Nina Libeskind established Studio Daniel Libeskind  in Berlin, Germany, in 1989 after winning the competition to build the Jewish Museum Berlin. In February 2003, Studio Daniel Libeskind moved its headquarters from Berlin to New York City when Daniel Libeskind was selected as the master planner for the World Trade Center redevelopment.
