The Iconic Building

"A new type of achitecture has emerged in the last decade : the iconic landmark building, which challenges the traditional architectural monument. In the past, public buildings expressed shared meaning through well-known conventions. Today those conventions are superceded by commercial forces and the quest for instant fame. Public architecture is now required to be an amazing piece of surreal sculpture as well as something that appeals to a diverse audience - at once provocative and practical yet without the context that religion and ideaology once provided. Such contrary demands drive the architect toward a new convention : the enigmatic signifier. This curious sign suggests many meanings without naming of them. The most publized version of the genre, Frank Gehry's New Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, 1997, became an instant media event that forces other architects to design event buildings routinely. This 'Bilbao effect' has led to a series of landmark buildings by architects such as Norman Foster, Peter Eisenman, Enric Miralles, Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind, Renzo Piano, Will Alsop, and Rem Koolhaas. Some of these buildings are successful creations, while others make us wince." -- book jacket.

Daniel Libeskind represents a unique attempt to provide a comprehensive critical analysis of Libeskind's architecture and philosophy. Libeskind serves as the mediator of his own work, exploring various projects through an illuminating juxtaposition of textual commentary with illustrations of competition models, concept drawings, and site photos of realized works. Essays by Jacques Derrida and Mark C. Taylor, among others, provide a critical analysis of Libeskind's architecture, identifying his place within the context of contemporary architecture and theory. The book concludes with a collection of Libeskind's most important essays, many of which are published here in English for the first time.
