American architect Daniel Libeskind and his European representative Jochen Klein in the Bundeswehr Military History Museum in Dresden, Oct. 13. Libeskind’s design boldly interrupts the original building’s symmetry with an extension, a massive wedge of glass, concrete and steel, cutting through the 135-year-old former arsenal’s structural order. A viewing platform provides views of Dresden while pointing in the opposite direction toward the source of the fire-bombs, creating a space for reflection. (Matthias Hiekel / AFP – Getty Images)
