Counterpoint: Book Talk with Daniel Libeskind and Paul Goldberger

Wednesday, 12/10/2008, 6:00pm
Daniel Libeskind and Paul Goldberger will be joining us at the Center for Architecture to present their new book Counterpoint: Daniel Libeskind in Conversation with Paul Goldberger.

As the most current monograph on the work of architect Daniel Libeskind, Counterpoint is a comprehensive portrait of an architect committed to changing the face of architecture as it exists today. Readers can experience the full vision of Daniel Libeskind, from the initial sketch of a building to the eventual construction of some of the most celebrated projects in the world. Counterpoint highlights more than thirty projects, past and present, with drawings, detailed site plans and renderings, construction photos, and striking color images of completed projects across the globe. Also included are designs previously unreleased to the public.

Daniel Libeskind, born in Lódz, Poland, is an international figure in architectural practice and urban design. With more than forty projects worldwide, Libeskind’s practice extends from museums and concert halls to convention centers, universities, hotels, shopping centers, and residential projects. Libeskind has taught and lectured at universities internationally, received numerous awards, and designed world-renowned projects, including the master plan for the World Trade Center in New York and the Jewish Museum in Berlin, among others.

Paul Goldberger is the architecture critic for The New Yorker. He began his career at the New York Times, and in 1984, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism. He is the author of several books, most recently his chronicle of the process of rebuilding Ground Zero, Up From Zero: Politics, Architecture, and the Rebuilding of New York.
