Daniel Libeskind, architect of the Jewish Museum Berlin and World Trade Center Master Plan, spoke with PLANE—SITE in the seventh video of a series leading up to the GAA Foundation's Time-Space-Existence exhibition, planned as a collateral exhibition of the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.
Before Libeskind built the Jewish Museum Berlin, his first major project, he drew. Seen now, his complex, mind-boggling drawings foreshadow the museum, both in terms of their shared formal qualities and, as Libeskind explains in the short film, in that the building is about drawing. "Between the lines" was the concept for the museum and sums up how Libeskind considers drawings. The New York-based architect also talks about the World Trade Center Master Plan, his most significant project outside of the Jewish Museum Berlin even though he didn't design any of its buildings.

PLANE—SITE is producing a new series of videos, featuring protagonists from within the global architecture discourse. The video series will be exhibited in Palazzo Bembo and Palazzo Mora as part of the GAA Foundation's Time-Space-Existence exhibition, opening in May 2018. World-Architects is serving as media partner for the Time-Space-Existence video series, which will see at least one new video per month until the exhibition's opening. The interview series has been made possible with the support of the European Cultural Centre.
