Daniel Libeskind, the son of Shoah survivors, was born in the Polish city of Łódź in 1946. The family emigrated to Israel in 1957 and then moved to the United States in 1960, where Daniel Libeskind became an American citizen. He had started studying music while in Israel, which he continued in the United States before switching to architecture.
Daniel Libeskind had already made a name for himself as an architectural theorist and as the dean of the Architecture Department at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, when in 1989 his design “Between the Lines” won the competition for the “Extension of the Berlin Museum with a Jewish Museum Department.” Consequently, Daniel Libeskind relocated to Berlin with his family for the next thirteen years. In 1999, he was awarded the German Architecture Prize for his design. Libeskind returned to New York in 2003, where he won the competition for the new construction on Ground Zero where the World Trade Center previously stood.
