Date: 20 June 2014

London Metropolitan University Alumni Association, in partnership with The Cass are pleased to present internationally renowned architect Daniel Libeskind in Conversation with Robert Mull at an event which celebrates ten years since the completion of the University Graduate Centre.

An international figure in architecture and urban design, the architect Daniel Libeskind is renowned for his ability to evoke cultural memory in buildings of equilibrium-defying contemporaneity. Informed by a deep commitment to music, philosophy, and literature, Mr. Libeskind aims to create architecture that is resonant, original, and sustainable. Born in Lód’z, Poland, in 1946, Mr. Libeskind immigrated to the United States as a teenager.

Daniel Libeskind established his architectural studio in Berlin, Germany, in 1989 after winning the competition to build the Jewish Museum in Berlin. In February 2003, Studio Daniel Libeskind moved its headquarters from Berlin to New York City when Daniel Libeskind was selected as the master planner for the World Trade Centre redevelopment. Daniel Libeskind’s practice is involved in designing and realizing a diverse array of urban, cultural and commercial projects internationally. The Studio has completed buildings that range from museums and concert halls to convention centres, university buildings, hotels, shopping centres and residential towers.

As Principal Design Architect for Studio Daniel Libeskind (SDL), Mr. Libeskind speaks widely on the art of architecture in universities and professional summits. His architecture and ideas have been the subject of many articles and exhibitions, influencing the field of architecture and the development of cities and culture. Mr. Libeskind lives in New York with his wife and business partner, Nina Libeskind.

Professor Robert Mull, Dean of The Cass with talk to Daniel about his original concepts and his current projects before giving the audience an opportunity to ask questions.
