Daniel Libeskind designs sculptures for the gardens of Paleis Het Loo

Beginning in spring of 2019, Paleis Het Loo will exhibit four monumental contemporary art works in its gardens, designed by the Polish-American architect Daniel Libeskind. Libeskind is renowned throughout the world for his spectacular architecture and urban designs. His work in the palace gardens brings together his talents as architect, designer and artist.

It’s the first time that modern art will be on show in the gardens of Paleis Het Loo. For the installation, Libeskind lends an architectural interpretation to the baroque garden and creates a dialogue between the historic garden and a contemporary language. The presentation is part of Paleis Het Loo Open but not as usual and will be on show in the gardens from April until September for several years.
