I awakened to another beautiful morning in Dallas…almost scared to talk about it for fear of, you know. While preparing breakfast, I listened to a fascinating interview on BBC with renowned architect Daniel Libeskind who among many unique projects around the world is also known for designing the 1776 foot tower for One World Trade Center. (www.daniel-libeskind.com/) Born in Poland to Holocaust survivors, Libeskind immigrated to New York where he first followed a passion for music. He describes how architecture for him was a natural progression. Libeskind arrived to New York via Ellis Island and viewed the Statue of Liberty from a boat like millions of other early immigrants. His parents worked in sweat shops focused on only one thing: success for their children. As Malcom Gladwell writes in his book “Outliers: The story of Success,” Libeskind belongs to that special group. (www.gladwell.com/outliers/).
