Daniel Libeskind: Edge of Order

Sunday, Jan 20, 2019 │3–4:30pm


Architect Daniel Libeskind opens the door to his unique creative process and his methods for discovering new directions in his work. He will be in conversation with The CJM's Executive Director, Lori Starr, as they discuss the stories behind his most important projects, including the design for The Contemporary Jewish Museum, and how Daniel's unlikely rise—from a child born to Holocaust survivors in a Polish homeless shelter, to a teenager in the Bronx, to an avant-garde academic—still shapes his boundary-pushing work at Studio Libeskind.
