Daniel Libeskind

Polish-born architect, Daniel Libeskind (b. 1946) is known for his unconventional and often theoretical approach to architecture. His designs include the Jewish Museum in Berlin, the Felix Nussbaum Haus Museum in Osnabruck, Germany, and the Imperial War Museum in Salford, England. The Denver Art Museum expansion was his first US work to be completed. Libeskind was the winner of the competition to create a building to replace New York's World Trade Center, which was destroyed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. His "Freedom Tower" design, his most ambitious and controversial to date, is scheduled to open in 2011.
