ARTHOUSE WEIL BY DANIEL LIBESKIND. STUDIO WEIL IS A PAINTING AND SCULPTURE STUDIO DESIGNED AND BUILT FOR THE AMERICAN PAINTER AND SCULPTOR BARBARA WEIL OVERLOOKING THE SEA IN PORT D’ANDRATX IN MALLORCA, SPAIN. DANIEL LIBESKIND WORKED CLOSELY WITH MS. WEIL TO CREATE A BUILDING THAT NOT ONLY RESPONDS TO THE SURROUNDING LANDSCAPE, BUT ALSO FORMS A SPACE WHICH COMPLEMENTS AND CONTRASTS THE ARTIST’S WORK. THE BUILDING HOUSES EXHIBITION SPACES, WORKING QUARTERS AND A DRAMATIC LANDSCAPED GARDEN. [STUDIO WEIL] IS A BRAVE AND REMARKABLE STRUCTURE AND A FASCINATING EXAMPLE OF CREATIVE SYNERGY BETWEEN TWO ARTISTS WHO, UNKNOWINGLY, HAD SHARED SOMETHING LIKE A COMMON APPROACH TO VISUAL FORM LONG BEFORE LIBESKIND BECAME NEWS.” –THE GUARDIAN (SEPTEMBER 2003)
