An Interview with Daniel Libeskind

An interview with architect Daniel Libeskind, master-plan designer for the new World Trade Center site.

"Daniel Libeskind is an international figure in architecture and urban design. His practice extends from building major cultural and commercial institutions to opera sets and object design. In 2003, he was selected as the master-plan designer for the World Trade Center site."

"I think design is the foremost communicator of all, because without it, there would be no orientation about where we are, who we are, where the sky is, or where the earth is without a window or a door or a space. In some sense, architecture is the biggest communicator about what the world is, who human beings are and what their desires and dreams are."
