Libeskind was born in Poland, grew up in Tel Aviv, and moved to New York to study architecture at Cooper Union on a scholarship. After graduating, he continued his theoretical studies at Essex University in London and became a teacher at the Cranbook Academy of Art and Design. In 1986, he founded a nonprofit experimental and teaching laboratory in Milan called Architecture Intermundium.
His highly experimental projects appeared in the baseline exhibition Deconstructivist Architecture held at New York’s Museum of Modern Art in 1988. The next year he was in Los Angeles teaching at the Center for the Arts and the Humanities. In 1990, he won the competition for the Berlin Jewish Museum, leading him to become one of the most acclaimed architects in the international panorama.
