Daniel Libeskind (1946-) is one of the most relevant archistars in the current panorama of international architecture, one of the leading exponents of the current of deconstructivism. Born in Poland to a Jewish couple who survived the Holocaust, he moved to the United States in his early teens. His first major assignment was the leadership of the Department of Architecture of the prestigious Cranbrook Academy of Art, which in the decades under the leadership of Eliel Saarinen had been a seminal place of great American design. He then continues his career in Europe, in Berlin, where he perfects his peculiar style, made up of broken lines and daring geometries, with a bursting spectacular impact. Among his most famous creations are the Jewish Museum of Berlin, a project that imposed him in a leading role on the international architecture scene, and the redesign of the Ground Zero area in New York in which the skyscraper stands out. One World Trade Center. He has also brought his surprising aesthetic to the world of design with special projects for companies such as Moroso, Flexform, Slamp, Alessi and Fiam Italia.
