Peter Eisenman, an American star architect best known for the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, turned 90 today. Eisenman can look back on an impressive life’s work – not only as an architect and builder, but also as a theorist. He sees architecture as an opportunity to tell stories. This is also the case with the Holocaust Memorial in the heart of Berlin. The abstract field of stelae stretches unevenly over 19,073 square meters. Eisenman deliberately does not want to prescribe an interpretation, because remembrance and remembrance should become an individual experience.
The Foundation Memorial wishes Peter Eisenman all the best for the new year of life.
