Achitecture tells a story about the world, our desires and dreams.
Architecture, and the buildings, are much more than a place, they are
destinations meant to evoke emotion and to make you think about the world we
all live in.
Buildings and urban projects are crafted with perceptible human energy and
that they speak to the larger cultural community in which they are built.

Design characteristics:
Deconstructivist style

Layering angular organic chaos

Organic (curvilinear):

Venke pavallion

Crystals at city centre


Essentially consist of complicated composition of hybrid volumes

With acute angle.
The Jewish Museum Berlin, completed in 1999, was Libeskind's first major
international success

Design The Jewish Museum

essentially consists of two buildings
a baroque old building (that formerly
housed the Berlin Museum).
a new deconstructivist-style building
by Libeskind

The two buildings have no visible connection above ground and the new one is
accessible only via an underground passage from the old building. No entry
from new building
In the basement, visitors first encounter three intersecting, slanting
corridors named the Axes.
The basement further divided into three areas with different meanings.
The three axes symbolize three paths of Jewish life in Germany :-
Continuity in German history (permanent museum)
Emigration from Germany (leads to the garden of exile)
The Holocaust (the dead end)

The first axis ends at a long staircase that leads to the permanent
exhibition. Main museum Staircase
