Reading Between the Lines: An analysis of the role of text in the work of Daniel Libeskind
Tutor: Hentie Louw
Daniel Libeskind is a prolific writer and speaker - an example par excellence of the architect as, in the words of Mark Wigley, a 'public intellectual'.
This dissertation seeks to establish what role Libeskind's own spoken and written words, the 'text', have in his architecture and, importantly, the effect they have on how his buildings are approached, interpreted and understood.
