Breaking Ground shows us the inner workings of one of the most creative architects of our era.
Born in post-war Poland to survivor parents, Daniel Libeskind made his way first to Israel and then to New York City in 1959. His book meshes autobiography and social/philosophical treatise. Libeskind wants to explain to us who he is so that we can understand how he views life and death, catastrophe and destruction, creation, rebirth and memory. After that, we can understand how he fashions his designs.
