Mr. Libeskind speaks widely on the art of architecture in universities and professional summits. 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. His commitment to expanding the scope of architecture reflects his profound interest and involvement in philosophy, art, literature and music.

He feels that the notion of architecture is interesting. Architecture and music are closely related as both are based on balance and the balance is on the inner self and not in just eyes. Also,drawing is the source of architecture and it shows a faith on something you cannot see and which you only believe or dream. He believes a building should not be repetition of another building and it should make balance with the current lifestyle, culture and environment.
