‘architecture is a language which is able to narrate the story of the human soul.’– daniel libeskind

 

‘beyond the wall’ by architect daniel libeskind explores architecture as more than aesthetics and technique, and rather as a source for creativity and knowledge that ‘lives and breathes, characterized by an interior and an exterior, with a body and a soul, like the human being.’ the installationcurrently on display is based on the idea of a radiating spiral rendered as a complex series of stacked angular geometries with different central axesthat push and pull in opposing directions. dubbed a ‘mathematical mosaic’, the structure exhibits the characteristics of an endless fractal — the bacteriostatic quartz surface silestone is etched with a continuation of geometries that represents the contemporary tile, or ‘fractile’, tesselatedbut never quite identically repeated. the unique surface treatment is developed by the consentino group, who produces high-quality surfaces for architectural and design purposes. the pattern is essential to the overall massing, breaking down the scale and proportion of the twisting planes as they rise to the zenith of the construction.

 

the installation is currently on display at milan design week 2013, presented within the courtyard of the università degli studi di milano as part of the INTERNI hybrid architecture and design exhibition which runs from april 8th – 21st, 2013.

  • I think I speak for most architects when I say that I would never specify any material or product that was designed by Daniel Libeskind. It would be embarrassing to have his silly ideas contaminating my project.

  • This sculpture may stimulate Innovation. In my opinion, best place for this sculpture is in front of a technolgy company building.

  • Like every single thing Libeskind does, it’s totally pretentious. From the pathetic watercolor doodle to his striving but vapid text, it underscores what a total hack he is and always has been.

  • i expect in any moment to transform in a robot. did not fit the space that all.

    calin
  • The beautifully detailed and proportioned Renaissance building in the background reinforces how incompetent Libeskind is as an architect, and how ridiculous his “wall” is. Like veverything else he does, this sculpture spoils the context and hurts the eyes.

    Arroyo
  • Total rehash of the V&A. Very ugly then … still ugly now.

    Sandora
  • Please avoid the temptation to make this “useful.” It’s perfect as is. It doesn’t have to be architecture.

    Geoff Bush
  • V&A?

    Mark
  • Prefer Bouroullec’s Quiet Motion for bmw i more this year, for that installation makes functional interactions with people.
