Libeskind's German Military Museum

Jewish architect Daniel Libeskind punctures a 135-year-old original structure with a five-story wedge of glass, concrete and steel.

 “It was not my intention to preserve the museum’s facade and just add an invisible extension in the back.

The architecture will engage the public in the deepest issue of how organized violence and how military history and the fate of the city are intertwined.”—Daniel Libeskind
