Daniel Libeskind: Micromega 6 poster
A large poster showing one of Daniel Libeskind's Micromegas.
Early in his career Libeskind produced the Micromegas, drawings which reflected on the nature of architectural space. The Micromegas were named after a short story by the eighteenth-century French historian and philosopher Voltaire.
"An architectural drawing," Libeskind has written, "is as much a prospective unfolding of future possibilities as it is a recovery of a particular history, to whose intentions it testifies and whose limits it always challenges. In any case a drawing is more than the shadow of an object, more than a pile of lines, more than a resignation to the inertia of convention."
