“Misogyny is built into society”. Ground Zero masterplanner Daniel Libeskind on inclusive design and development

Daniel Libeskind, the architect behind the Jewish Museum in Berlin and the Ground Zero masterplan talks to EG about how we can capture the "spirit" of great urban developments. 

Libeskind, who will be attending Mipim this year as part of a collaboration with the city of Belfast revealed the importance of finding "the human roots of cities" before saying he would never start a development with the building or the concrete, but rather the will and desire of the people. 

"Architects can sit in their ivory towers," he says. "And suddenly a building appears. I don't like that kind of architecture. It should be about public involvement. Architecture is for the citizens."
