Daniel Libeskind’s 2001 Imperial War Museum North in Salford Is the topic of the essay. In this essay you are asked to explain the debates about Iconic Buildings and the building of landmarks that began with the opening of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao by Frank Gehry in 1997. The city of Bilbao experienced an unprecedented raise in tourism and economic growth. In an effort to emulate this ‘Bilbao effect’ a global trend developed where cities commissioned well-known architects to build landmark buildings. Critics such as Charles Jencks, Deijan Sudjic and Miles Glendinning have commented on the effects that this trend had on the economic, social and historic fabric of cities where such landmarks where built. You are required to outline the debate around iconic buildings and the ‘Bilbao effect’ and you are required to explain how Daniel Libeskind’s 2001 Imperial War Museum North in Salford was part of this discourse.
