Peter Eisenman – Moving Arrows, Eros and Other Errors
An Architecture of Absence
Peter Eisenman is a prominent American architect and educator who is known for his highly conceptual and theoretical approach to design. He was born on August 11, 1932, in Newark, New Jersey, and received his architecture degree from Cornell University in 1955.
Eisenman is particularly well-known for his deconstructivist approach to architecture, which emphasizes fragmentation, complexity, and ambiguity. His buildings tend to be characterized by complex geometries and abstract forms, and often appear more like works of sculpture or installations than conventional buildings.
Some of Eisenman’s most notable projects include the Wexner Center for the Arts at Ohio State University, the City of Culture of Galicia in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, and the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, Germany.
In addition to his work in architecture, Eisenman is also an influential educator and theorist. He has taught at numerous institutions, including the Cooper Union, Harvard University, and Yale University, and has published a number of influential books and essays on architecture and urbanism.
