We recently had the honor of welcoming Daniel Libeskind and Tomás Saraceno at MADE. 

The day after this wonderful event we sat down with legendary architect and city planner Daniel Libeskind.
He was kind enough to take the time to talk with us about creativity, the craft of architecture and various other aspects of his life.

The ease of choosing words to express himself, as well as the way he could share his thoughts on the certain topics, showed us what an inspiring professional he is.
Truly a visionary in every sense of the word.

Check out the interview right here:


  1. He talks the talk and throws in all the “feel good” sound bites, but there’s no real connection between what Libeskind says and what he actually does. His architecture speaks only to Libeskind’s jealousy of more talented peers, of his inability to appreciate fine design or to respect the prevailing sense of place. Libeskind’s been running on empty for about ten years, stuck in the same rut, applying superficial wedges and slashing lines to every project unfortunate to come through his door. Repetition of a cliche is not the same as design. – Check out the viewers comments to Libeskind’s talk on TED.com. If you still think he’s a “visionary”, I got a bridge I’d like to sell you.

  2. I agree. When he’s not talking in bland generalities, he uses cloying platitudes. But ultimately, he’s got nothing to say. all that hand movement stuff is a ploy to distract from the dearth of substance. I’m amazed that he’s gotten away with this empty performance as long as he has.
