Welcome to the 21st Century
Daniel Libeskind is one of the most important architects of the 21st century - as well as one of the most controversial. At once sensual and intellectual, his work plays with the geometry of perception. In unifying form and function in a strongly modern way, the work engages with the philosophical debate surrounding the culture of buildings and their history. This film highlights Libeskind's work and creative processes, while casting particular focus on the Jewish Museum in Berlin and the Spiral, a planned but unrealized extension to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
