ABOUT THE PANELISTS:
Daniel Libeskind is the founder and principal architect at Studio Libeskind. As Principal Design Architect for Studio Libeskind, Mr. Libeskind speaks widely on the art of architecture in universities and professional summits. Libeskind was also selected as master planner for the World Trade Center redevelopment. His architecture and ideas have been the subject of many articles and exhibitions, influencing the field of architecture and the development of cities and culture. In 2003, Studio Libeskind won an historic competition—to create a master plan for the rebuilding of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. In addition to a towering spire of 1,776 feet, the Libeskind design study proposed a complex program encompassing a memorial, underground museum, the integration of the slurry wall, special transit hub and four office towers. This plan is being realized today.
John Stuart is the Dean for Cultural and Community Engagement, Executive Director of Miami Beach Urban Studios, and Professor at Florida International University. He is also an architectural historian and a visual artist developing collaborative research projects on complexity, community, identity, technology, the environment and public space with funding from Van Alen Institute, The National Endowment for the Arts, The National Science Foundation, The National Endowment for the Humanities, and The Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
