Although I can’t say I am fond of Libeskind’s architectural and theoretical production, (BTW here’s an insight of his “methodologies” from within the office), these 1979 drawings from the series Micromegas are simply dazzling!
From a post on the architectural forum “Pushpull Bar”:
Early in his career Libeskind produced two suites of drawings which reflected his thinking about the nature of architectural space: Micromegas and Chamberworks. Developed from his interest in geometry, Micromegas could be considered an alternative blueprint, whilst Chamberworks seems to explore the interaction between architecture and music, deeply rooted in his background and arguably one of his greatest influences. Both are clearly the basis on which Libeskind’s theatrical, geometrically complex architecture was developed and it is remarkable how his vision, borne in these drawings, have been realised in his projects.
