Near fine; very slight shelf wear.'Daniel Libeskind The Space of Encounter captures the architect at a major turning point in his career. In true Libeskind fashion, it eschews the traditional monograph format, focusing instead on the underlying processes that drive his work and from which his concepts take shape. It reveals for the first time in book form his project proposal texts, and includes excerpts from lauded speeches and lectures, interviews conducted with international newspapers and journals, and his poems and correspondence. The reader is guided through a captivating array of ideas and images from 1979 to the year 2005, charting Libeskind's evolution from radical educator to the high-profile, convincing and inspiring architect that he is today. Complementing Libeskind's brilliantly perceptive textual material are his forceful drawings and full-colour images of his project models, finished projects, and projects in progress.'
