13. Daniel Libeskind - Architecture which speaks to the heart


Our guest needs no introduction, as he is preceded by his architectural masterpieces, so we shall just share his advice: "Believe in something bigger than yourself, believe something that is not just on the common highway, but takes a path that may be more vulnerable, a path which may even make you fail. But take that path, because on that path you will discover something that is an adventure, that you could have not predicted when you started on that path," - Daniel Libeskind - Founder and Principal Architect of Studio Libeskind-Unplugged, conversations with creative minds, from the design industry and beyond, hosted by H&H Studio.

He’s one of the world’s most highly regarded architects and someone people can trust to work with projects of great meaning and significance, especially where loss in involved.   Next, host George Smart visits with the Queen of Palm Springs, the woman everyone wants to talk to by the pool, Nelda Linsk.  Later a delightful chat with Alison Martino, producer, writer, reporter, preservationist, and a master chronicler of old Hollywood, in which she grew up as the daughter of singer Al Martino.

Daniel Libeskind at the ‘Edge of Order,’ Sunset Magazine, and Sound Baths

Design and Architecture

Why does an architect have to be like a “camel in the desert?” Daniel Libeskind explains why in a conversation about his new book “Edge of Order.” He also shares thoughts about maintaining hope following trauma, not working for dictators, and why everyone should tap into their inner architect.  Modernism Week in Palm Springs continues through Sunday with tours, talks, and a trip down memory lane to the heyday of Sunset magazine. Victoria Bernal recalls a childhood as a member of the “Sunset family” and says why the West needs a magazine that shares wisdom on everything from home design for California’s geography to how to “fish with a tire iron.” And, can you cure bad sound with good sound? Kate Mishkin takes a sound bath at 1 Hotel and finds that “this is the exact right time for sound baths, because we are living in a society that's increasingly anxious and loud and chaotic.”
