Quite recently, on July 31, 2018, on the eve of the anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, at the request of the Association of the Warsaw Insurgents, the creator of the unusual building at Złota Street in Warsaw was awarded the City of Warsaw Prize for spreading the fame of the Polish capital by designing the Złota 44 residential tower.
The winner of this amazing distinction was Daniel Libeskind, a world-famous architect, artist, and visionary, coming from our country.
Daniel Libeskind is an architect born in 1946 in Łódź in a Jewish family that was sent to the USSR during Soviet aggression on Poland. This exile saved the Liebeskind family from the Holocaust. After the war, his parents returned to Poland and later moved to Tel Aviv in 1957, and to New York in 1959. It was there that young Daniel received an education that allowed him to combine artistic passion with work.
Despite moving out at a young age, the architect speaks Polish, loves Poland as his homeland and emphasizes what a great honor was for him the opportunity to create in cities such as Warsaw. His project Zlota 44 is a combination of love for the homeland, recognition of the capital as a city symbolizing sacrifice during Second World War and highlighting beauty in its architecture by adding a building which one cannot pass by remaining indifferent.
