Daniel Libeskind established his architectural studio in Berlin, Germany in 1989. Upon winning the World Trade Center design competition in February 2003, Studio Daniel Libeskind (SDL) moved its headquarters to New York City. The office is now headquartered two blocks south of the original World Trade Center site.Since 1990, the office has been fortunate to be involved in a diverse array of urban, architectural, and cultural projects. The office has won commissions for major cultural buildings and significant urban projects in Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Canada, the United States, Japan, Spain, Israel, Mexico, Korea, Singapore and China. Daniel Libeskind’s architecture continues to reflect his profound interest and involvement in philosophy, art, music, literature, theater and film, and a continuing commitment to expanding the horizons of architecture and urbanism. It is fundamental to Daniel Libeskind’s thinking and motivation that buildings and urban projects are crafted with perceptible human energy and that they speak to the larger cultural community in which they are built.The New York office has an average permanent staffing of 70 persons. SDL has European partner offices based in Zürich, Switzerland and Milan, Italy. In addition, the Studio has established site and partner offices with personnel around the world, including San Francisco, Denver, Bern, Toronto and Hong Kong, bringing the total number of worldwide employees to roughly 140 persons.The office has extensive resources and experience in computer aided design, with Macintosh and PC computer workstations used to produce 2D and 3D presentation materials, working drawings, and construction documents. The office uses email and FTP sites to furnish design documents to consultants all over the world and maintains a video conferencing facility. Complementing this, traditional drawing and model-making techniques are extensively employed at all stages of the design process to visualize and develop important aspects of the designs. In particular, a comprehensively equipped workshop, with facilities for the production of high-quality presentation models and mock-ups, functions as a key resource in the development and realization of the Studio’s designs.
