Daniel Libeskind, Architect

Polish-American architect, Daniel Libeskind, is the man behind a unique piece of architecture that can be found in Port d’Andratx, on the way to Sa Mola. Mr. Libeskind is one of the world’s Top Ten contemporary architects alive.

The woman behind the building is American artist, Barbara Weil, a gifted painter/sculptor of a self-declared New Expressionist style, who has been residing in Mallorca since 1979. 

This visionary piece of stunning architecture, Mr. Libeskind’s only work in Spain to date, was completed in 2003. The building functions as a studio and showroom for Ms. Weil’s work, and is also a venue for occasional concerts. 

Visits are possible Saturdays and Sundays from 11h30 to 14h00 and from 16h00 to 18h00, or by prior arrangement. Telephone 971.671.647.

The photo was chosen from my archives. It was taken in Port d’Andratx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: April 15th, 2005. The time was 16:44:11.

  1. Gosh, that’s harsh, Maurice. Calling Libeskind’s work “pretentious” makes it sound as if you don’t “understand” it, as if it were an instruction manual. Just enjoy it for what it is. Make up your own mind what it “means”, but if you can’t find anything, that doesn’t make it pretentious. By “superficial” — which, like the work or not, it clearly isn’t — you must mean that his working method is not your own, in which case you ought to just say so.
