Born in 1946 in Lód’z, Poland, Daniel Libeskind completed his professional degree in architecture at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in 1970. He then went on to study at the School of Comparative Studies at Essex University in England where he received a postgraduate degree in history and theory of architecture in 1972.

In 1989, Libeskind founded Studio Libeskind in Berlin with his wife Nina and later moved its headquarters to New York City after being selected as the master planner for the World Trade Center redevelopment.

Libeskind is known for his bold designs characterized by jagged edges, sharp angles and geometric shapes that often trigger an emotional response to many viewers. Some of his notable works include the Jewish Museum in Berlin, the Denver Art Museum in Colorado and the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.

Here’s a look at some of Libeskind’s famous buildings we found on Instagram!
