MY SYMBOLISM IS NOT SUPERFICIAL - LIBESKIND

  • Comment
LETTERS

I loved reading your article about the Lubetkin Prize winners (AJ 29.06.06); it certainly evoked the entire ambience!

I was however startled to read that you felt that the symbolism that I use in my buildings is superficial. Certainly I consider true symbolism relates to site and history (such as the Jewish Museum in Berlin, the Imperial War Museum in Manchester and, of course, the 1,776ft spire of the Freedom Tower) and is expressed in buildings, each one of which is an attempt to make a contribution to architecture beyond mere form-making.

Daniel Libeskind, by email
