Daniel Libeskind is one of the most important architects of the 21st century – and one of the most controversial. At once sensual and intellectual, his architecture plays with the geometry of perception. In unifying form and function, his work engages with the philosophical debate surrounding the culture of buildings and their history. The film highlights Libeskind’s work and follows the creative process that give rise to his buildings. It throws a special focus on the design of the Jewish Museum in Berlin and the debate surrounding The Spiral, the former planned extension to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
