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.
