Daniel Libeskind, the architect responsible for the design of the Jewish Museum in Berlin, discusses the profound thought process he implemented when creating the museum that stands as a symbol of Germany's Holocaust history, where Adolf Hitler is recognized as having commanded the genocide of more than 6 million Jews. Given this deeply tragic aspect of Germany's past, Libeskind clarifies that the museum is more about emotional resonance. Its design, every nook and cranny, each entrance and exit, is specifically created to elicit a unique reaction from its visitors.

In addition, he speaks about the Ground Zero project where he says his design was really about people. Every aspect of the project, he explains, is about how human beings interact with the space.
