Daniel Libeskind describes his proposal for the development of the site of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, his proposal for the development of the Alexanderplatz in central Berlin, and the on-going construction of Jewish Museum extension to the Berlin Museum.


Daniel Libeskind Part One

Daniel Libeskind argues that architects and the field of architecture has lost touch with reality, aborbed by its own needs, and a pawn of wider societal struggles. Homer’s story of Ulysses and the sirens suggests the need to voluntarily restrict ourselves in order not to be distracted by ruses. In order to maintain an accurate picture of reality, we must occasionally bind ourselves from temptation, or commit ourselves to another’s cause. Libeskind compares the current state of architecture to Jonah stuck inside the belly of an whale, without any desire to escape, or face reality.

The concluding 13 minutes of Libeskind’s lecture. He finds most of contemporary architecture misguided. On the other hand, he claims that many architects of his generation are rethinking assumptions, and rethinking the nature of architecture. He quickly displays some of his models and drawings to show how his work tries to deal with the themes of his lecture.
