A micro-architecture designed by Daniel Libeskind, a direct tribute to his friend Aldo Rossi, Milanese architect and keen enthusiast of the dialectic rapport between urban planning and domestic landscape. “Water Tower” is a container that draws its inspiration from typical water tanks that populate the roofs of the New York skyline. The concentric rings along the body of the container, the pointed lid and the articulated base structure reproduce in minute detail the large tanks which distinguish the landscape of the American city. A sophisticated and complex object, ensuing from the manufacturing skills acquired by the engineers at the factory in Crusinallo, Omegna.
An international figure in architecture and urban design, the architect Daniel Libeskind is renowned for his ability to evoke cultural memory in buildings of equilibrium-defying contemporaneity. Born in Lód’z, Poland, in 1946, Mr. Libeskind immigrated to the United States as a teenager. Daniel Libeskind established his architectural studio in Berlin, Germany, in 1989 after winning the competition to build the Jewish Museum in Berlin. In February 2003, Studio Libeskind moved its headquarters from Berlin to New York City when Daniel Libeskind was selected as the master planner for the World Trade Center redevelopment. Daniel Libeskind’s practice is involved in designing and realizing a diverse array of urban, cultural and commercial projects internationally.
