On Monday The New York Times featured a residential project in Germany by architect Daniel Libeskind.

The house is designed as three interlocking structures and most of the elements will be manufactured in a factory.

Interesting to note: Daniel Libeskind designed "the Jewish Museum Berlin and the master plan for the reconstruction of the World Trade Center site in New York".

“I did everything in reverse in my career,” he said. “Most people start with small projects and go on to design a museum. I started with a museum.”

But he says residential design is “the more interesting part of architecture.”

“Too often we celebrate great civic institutions,” Mr. Libeskind continued, “but actually architecture is how people live and how well they live.”
