Opening March 11, and on view until April 30, Rome’s Ermanno Tedeschi Gallery (Via del Portico d'Ottavia 7) will offer Never Say the Eye Is Rigid:Architectural Drawings of Daniel Libeskind, the city’s first exhibition of architectural drawings by the world-renowned architect. The exhibition includes 52 original drawings from eight diverse Libeskind projects in Germany, Italy, Poland, United Kingdom and the United States, including the architect’s signature work, the Jewish Museum Berlin (2001), and Memory Foundations, Ground Zero (2003), the master plan for the World Trade Center site. More information on the exhibition after the break.

The 52 drawings exhibit a wide range styles and techniques ranging from almost classical line drawings to expressive watercolors to free-flowing ink sketches. What links them is a connection between the philosophical ideas underlying a given project and that project’s individual aesthetic character – its particular color, mood, posture and tension. From the huge scroll depicting the Ground Zero master plan to the intimate sketches for the Jewish Museum Berlin, the works offer the viewer a rare glimpse of the architect’s approach to some of his most famous projects.
