Architect Daniel Libeskind started his architectural career by spending around 20 years teaching and developing his theories and design rather than actually design and creating any buildings.
With his design of The Jewish Museum, Berlin he showed that as an architect he could turn his ideas and teachings into buildings that are renowned and innovative.
His designs are are bold and geometric with clean lines. His buildings incorporate glass, metal and other sturdy reflective materials. His style is distinctive and recognisable.
