Edge of Order
Date: Wednesday 15 May 2019
Venue: AA Bookshop
Daniel Libeskind is one of the foremost architects of our time, a self-proclaimed rebel celebrated for innovative, site-conscious designs, including the Berlin Jewish Museum and World Trade Centre Redevelopment. He has emerged as one of architecture’s most visible public ambassadors, and in Edge of Order he opens the door to his unique creative process, guiding readers through a selection of his projects never before seen – ones that have been built, ones that are unrealised, major commissions, unexpected favourites – revealing how he arrived at their designs through writings and a rich array of visuals, including drawings, plans, photographs. With a voracious appetite for history and culture coupled with an encyclopaedic memory Libeskind uses influences from classic Greek mythology, The Marx Brothers, even the poetry of Emily Dickinson, to explain the way he thinks about buildings and cities.
Edge of Order is a stunning tour of this master architects work, and an essential document of his remarkable career, sure to inspire and encourage for generations to come. Join us for a drinks reception with Daniel Libeskind to celebrate the launch of this great new book.
All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
