Libeskind was born in Poland in 1946 to holocaust survivors just before moving to Israel, then on to New York in 1959.
He founded the Studio Libeskind in 1989 with his wife, Nina, right after he won the competitors to design and style the Jewish Museum Berlin.
“From early childhood, Libeskind was conscious of the void left by the Holocaust, and this childhood knowledge of death and individual reduction identified expression in his Jewish Museum in Berlin,” mentioned Roca curator Clare Farrow.

“Libeskind sees memory, not in terms of nostalgia or sentimentality, but as some thing that ‘leads to new thoughts,” she continued.
The discussion at the Zaha Hadid-design and style gallery will be hosted by Gillian Darley – an architectural historian who has worked as a correspondent for the Observer and chaired the Society for the Safety of Ancient Buildings.
