As an architectural theorist, Peter Eisenman, founder and chairman of Eisenman Architects (NYC), occupies an exceptional position
with his antitheses to classicism, his rejection of classicisms moral imperative and his avoidance of typologies. His
status as an architect can be recognized in light of a large number of pioneering buildings. At the 9th Venice Biennale of
Architecture in 2004, Eisenman was awarded the Golden Lion for his lifes work. As a teacher, Peter Eisenman is at home
at the most important universities. And in the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, which was opened on 10 May 2005, Eisenman created
a monument of architectonic commemorative culture.
