The Reserved Commercial Facility Before Receiving AIANY Medal of Honor Dusseldorf designed by Studio Daniel Libeskind is located in Germany. The concept for the retail and commercial office complex is decidedly un-Libeskind. Aside from irregularly positioned windows and diagonally slanting green panels, Kö-Bogen is free of the dramatically metaphorical artwork or poetical flourishes it’s architect is renowned for.
At a grand ceremony in New York this evening, Daniel Libeskind will receive the highest honour bestowed by the AIANY – the Medal of Honor – in recognition of his ‘distinguished work and high professional standing’. Members of the public will be able to attend the event at the Center for Architecture in the City, which will see Libeskind’s name added to an esteemed list of previous recipients which includes Louis Skidmore, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and David Childs.
