Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1, University of Hamburg (Kunstgeschichtliches Institut), course: Hauptseminar, 15 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: Double Spaced, abstract: "If I perish, don't let my paintings die, exhibit them " While speaking these words in his Belgian exile in 1942, Felix Nussbaum did not know that he had only two more years to live until the terror regime of National-Socialism would murder him and his wife, Felka Platek, in Auschwitz. Being only forty years of age when murdered, the artist seemed to have abandoned all hope after being forced to live in exile and under constant threat of discovery since 1933. Nevertheless, this personal hopelessness did not include the destiny of his artwork, for which Felix Nussbaum cared as long as possible. "The unpainted paintings of Felix Nussbaum demand nothing less than to become visible to the contemplating eye" and so Daniel Libeskind built a museum in Osnabruck to house the largest collection of Nussbaum's paintings as well as to create "a profound place for the encounter of the future and the past and not only a testament to an impossible fate." In July 1998, 54 years after Felix Nussbaum's deportation to Auschwitz, the museum opened its gates to the public. "The Museum without an Exit," as Daniel Libeskind coined his building, challenges the traditional idea of museums as "Temples of Contemplation." Libeskind insists on emotional and physical experiences evoked when entering the museum's space. His difficult building does not allow visitors to be passive spectators, since the museum does not simply offer space for distributing works of art. Rather, Libeskind's building urges people to get closer to the experience of Felix Nussbaum and hence sets new standards in regard of museum-building."

Influenced by a deep commitment to music, philosophy, and literature, the world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind chooses drawing to put his ideas and thoughts into practice, stating that architectural drawing is in itself a creative work. Drawings which constitute "architectural explorations" – from Micromegas to Chamber Works and Sonnets in Babylon – are presented in this book along with those on "real" architecture, documenting the creative process of prestigious projects such as the Jewish Museum in Berlin and the World Trade Center redevelopment in New York.

Scarcely any other contemporary building has been the focus of so much attention and heated discussion as the Jewish Museum in Berlin. This guide to the museum's architecture sheds light on its symbolism as well as on the philosophy behind it. The historic and social significance of this museum extends far beyond the bounds of the city. Its already famous zigzag structure challenges the very way we regard architecture.

Daniel Libeskind represents a unique attempt to provide a comprehensive critical analysis of Libeskind's architecture and philosophy. Libeskind serves as the mediator of his own work, exploring various projects through an illuminating juxtaposition of textual commentary with illustrations of competition models, concept drawings, and site photos of realized works. Essays by Jacques Derrida and Mark C. Taylor, among others, provide a critical analysis of Libeskind's architecture, identifying his place within the context of contemporary architecture and theory. The book concludes with a collection of Libeskind's most important essays, many of which are published here in English for the first time.

This book explores the notion of mapping in architectural discourse. First locating, positioning and theorizing mapping, it then makes explicit the relationship between research and design in architecture through cartography and spatial analysis. It proposes three distinct modalities: tool, operation and concept, showing how these methods lead to discursive aspects of architectural work and highlighting mapping as an instrument in developing architectural form. It emphasizes the importance of place and time as fundamental terms with which to understand the role of mapping. An investigation into architectural discourse, this book will appeal to academics and researchers within the discipline with a particular interest in theory, history and cartography.

The Memorial Ethics Of Libeskind S Berlin Jewish Museum

This book is a detailed critical study of Libeskind’s Berlin Jewish Museum in its historical, architectural and philosophical context. Emphasizing how the Holocaust changed our perception of history, memory, witnessing and representation, it develops the notion of ‘memorial ethics’ to explore the Museum’s difference from more conventional post-World War Two commemorative sites. The main focus is on the Museum as an experience of the materiality of trauma which engages the visitor in a performative duty to remember. Arleen Ionescu builds on Levinas’s idea of ‘ethics as optics’ to show how Libeskind’s Museum becomes a testimony to the unpresentable Other. Ionescu also extends the Museum’s experiential dimension by proposing her own subjective walk through Libeskind’s space reimagined as a ‘literary museum’. Featuring reflections on texts by Beckett, Celan, Derrida, Kafka, Blanchot, Wiesel and Selma Meerbaum-Eisinger (Celan’s cousin), this virtual tour concludes with a brief account of Libeskind’s analogous ‘healing project’ for Ground Zero.

Reflections on Architecture, Society and Politics brings together a series of thirteen interview-articles by Graham Cairns in collaboration with some of the most prominent polemic thinkers and critical practitioners from the fields of architecture and the social sciences, including Noam Chomsky, Peggy Deamer, Robert A.M. Stern, Daniel Libeskind and Kenneth Frampton. Each chapter explores the relationship between architecture and socio-political issues through discussion of architectural theories and projects, citing specific issues and themes that have led to, and will shape, the various aspects of the current and future built environment. Ranging from Chomsky’s examination of the US–Mexico border as the architecture of oppression to Robert A.M. Stern’s defence of projects for the Disney corporation and George W. Bush, this book places politics at the center of issues within contemporary architecture.

For more than twenty years Daniel Libeskind has been regarded as one of the world's leading architectural theoreticians and educators. Since 1973, he has taught at more than forty institutions, maintaining such distinguished positions as head of the Cranbrook Academy of Art's School of Architecture in Bloomfield, Michigan, founder and director of Architecture Intermundium in Milan, Italy, the Sir Bannister Fletcher Architecture Professor at the University of London in London, England, professor at the University of California, Los Angeles' School of Architecture and Urban Planning in Los Angeles, California, and the First Louis Kahn Professorship at Yale University. Throughout Libeskind's career, his approach to the profession of architecture and the development of the world's built environment has defied convention. He is one of the last heroes of the architecture world's avant-garde. And while he is the recipient of numerous awards and citations for his designs, Libeskind's architectural output has largely consisted of models, drawings, poetry, and ephemera. For years, Studio Libeskind sustained itself as a laboratory for the testing of his boundary-breaking ideas. In 1989 Libeskind competed for the commission to design what would become the Jewish Museum Berlin. He won. Since then, he relocated his office from Milan to Berlin, was nominated for the Pritzker prize for Architecture, and was commissioned to design the Felix Nussbaum Haus, a museum for the city of Osnabrück, Germany, which opened to critical acclaim in 1998. In 1999, he was awarded the Deutsche Architektur Preis (German Architecture Prize) for his Jewish Museum Berlin, a structure that received over 250,000 visitors before it contained even a single work of art. Now, because he has been commissioned to design the extension to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England, the Imperial War Museum in Manchester, England, the Jewish Museum in San Francisco, California, the JVC University in Guadalajara, Mexico, and, most recently, the extension to the Denver Art Museum in Denved, Colorado, the world is encountering in built form the riveting design concepts of Daniel Libeskind. the first book to get inside Libeskind's extraordinary world, The Space of Encounter eschews the traditional monograph format as it tracks the architect's life's work, pulling the reader back to the 1980s and guiding him through an often mesmerizing array of ideas and projects extending into the year 2005. By revealing for the first time in book form his project proposal texts, excerpts from lauded speeches and lectures, interviews conducted with international newspapers and periodicals, in addition to his poems and correspondence, this book captures Libeskind at a major turning point in his career. Here, we learn of Libeskind's experience of being a radical educator to becoming a high profile, convincing and inspiring architect. Complementing his brilliantly insightful textual material are his forceful drawings and full-color images of his project models, finished projects, and projects in progress.

Architects today are increasingly subject to the dictates of the free market, globalism, and the gradual privatization of state institutions. Indeed, pressure to alter their projects to conform to market forces and popular taste has never been greater. Must successful design correspond to the wishes of the masses? On what exactly are the trends and expectations of the general public based? Is design always a response against popular trends or can adapting to popular tendencies also generate the potential to create a better living environment?What People Want is an examination of the concept of populism by internationally known contributors such as Diller - Scofidio, Kas Oosterhuis, Bill Moggridge (IDEO), and bestselling author Thomas Frank.

Offering an in-depth consideration of the impact which humanities have had on the processes of architecture and design, this book asks how we can restore the traditional dialogue between intellectual enquiry in the humanities and design creativity. Written by leading academics in the fields of history, theory and philosophy of design, these essays draw profound meanings from cultural practices and beliefs. These are as diverse as the designs they inspire and include religious, mythic, poetic, political, and philosophical references. This timely and important book is not a benign reflection on humanities' role in architectural design but a direct response to the increased marginalization of humanities in a technology driven world. The prioritization of technology leaves critical questions unanswered about the relationships between information and knowledge, transcription and translation, and how emerging technologies can usefully contribute to a deeper understanding of our design culture.

The creative process that goes on within the architect's mind's eye is explored here. Tom Porter looks at the conceptual tools architects need to develop in order to create new designs, and the visual means, through drawing, modelmaking and computing that are available to the architect to express those designs. Central to the conceptual process is the understanding of space, both in physical and psychological terms, and the associated concepts of light and colour. With a range of examples from Greek temples to flight simulators, the author explains and evaluates the right approach to conceiving space in human terms.
