Daniel Libeskind belongs to the most important architects, stars whose names are the synonyms of innovation and high quality. He was born after the Second World War in Łódź in a Jewish family and as a child emigrated to Israel where he got a musical education. He got interested in architecture as a 26 year old man. His first works were made on music paper in Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science in New York.

He is called a deconstructivist and antimodernist but these words aren’t an accurate reflection of his character. His works are closer to sculptures than classic buildings. One can check it on the exhibition “Architecture as a language” in Architecture Museum.

The exhibition consists of the works of Daniel Libeskind, mainly photos of existing buildings and visualizations of objects that are in progress or conceptions that will never be made. It also shows the model of a new building in Warsaw – Złota 44 apartment building called the glass sail, the theater set design sketches and the projects of pieces of equipment. That is why brilliant cuts of “Spirit House” chair or the flash of the silver tea service Sawaya&Moroni can be only admired in the photos on the exhibition.

The exhibition “Architecture as a language” – Daniel Libeskind – will be open in Architecture Museum in Bernardyńska Street 5 till 15 May 2011.
