Daniel Libeskind Interview: Cities of the Future
Starchitect Daniel Libeskind was in Toronto, Canada for the topping off of his latest architectural gem the LTower. The LTower soars to 205 metes with a swooping sculptural gesture to the city. It was a celebration indeed as the 285 million dollar LTower project has resulted in the preservation of The Sony Centre breathing new life into this cultural centre for the Arts by acclaimed Canadian Architect Peter Dickinson. Libeskind met myETVmedia at the ROM where he designed the Michael-Lee Chin Crystal to discuss his vision of cities in the future and his current projects including the LTower.
Daniel Libeskind is an internationally acclaimed architect with many spectacular museums, residential towers, innovative public spaces and large city precincts to his credit. He and his wife Nina Libeskind founded Studio Daniel Libeskind in 1989.
