Daniel Libeskind: Jewish Museum Berlin : Between the Lines
Scarcely any other contemporary building has been the focus of so much attention and heated discussion as the Jewish Museum in Berlin. The historic and social significance of this recently completed museum extends far beyond the bounds of the city. Its already famous zigzag structure challenges the very way we regard architecture. With photographs taken especially for this volume, this publication provides a guide to the museum's architecture, shedding light on its symbolism as well as on the philosophy behind it.
