15 May 2008

Polish Language Version of Architect’s Internationally Renowned Book Released


Architect Daniel Libeskind introduces his iconoclastic approach to public space and shares his vision for the most important architectural project of our time, the 1776 Freedom Tower at the World Trade Center site, during the launch of the Polish language version of his book, Breaking Ground: An Immigrant’s Journey from Poland to Ground Zero. Drawing on his uncommon background and global perspective, in Breaking Ground Daniel Libeskind explores ideas about tragedy and hope, and the way in which architecture can memorialize—and reshape—human experience.
