Physical Description: ca. 1,000 items 11 boxes, 15 flat file folders, 137 rolls, 8 models

Scope and Content Note

This subseries contains architectural drawings - originals and reproductions, many with annotations, notebooks, manuscripts and models. There are some reference materials from earlier projects which were re-used for this project.
The drawings were received in sets which have been kept together. Items within sets were rearranged chronologically.
The series is arranged in 7 phases:
Competition Phase, until June 1989
Interim, June to Sept. 1989
Expert Opinion Phase/Gutachen, Sept. 1989 to 15. Feb. 1990
Preliminary Design Phase I/Vorentwurf I, Feb. to 1 July 1990

Preliminary Design Phase III/Vorentwurf III, Sept. to 11 Oct. 1990
Design Phase/Entwurf, Oct. 1990 to 1 June 1991
All efforts were made to keep Libeskind's original organization. Items within each phase have been rearranged chronologically, with undated materials at the end of each phase, but no items were moved from one phase to another, despite the date on the item since some items from earlier phases were used in later phases as reference material or were adapted, altered or corrected. See Series 4. and 5. for additional items related to this material.

Series 3.  Correspondence, 1983, 1988-1992

Physical Description: 4 boxes 2 lin. ft.

Scope and Content Note

The bulk of the correspondence is concerned with the controversies and delays in the construction of Between the Lines, the Jewish Museum Extension. Most of the correspondence consists of fax letters, with original signatures by Libeskind, sent to friends, colleagues and other supporters for his Between the Lines project.
The bulk of the correspondence begins in 1988, and continues through 1992. There are some legal letters regarding the 1990 publication incident where a Christian cross was superimposed over his name. The majority of the letters in 1991 solicit support for Between the Lines during the crisis. The majority of the 1992 correspondence is comprised of fax letters from Libeskind to various parties informing them of the ground breaking and thanking them for their support.
The correspondence is largely organized by year, then alphabetically. The correspondence is relatively evenly divided between English and German.
