It is also a chance to see the work of Daniel Libeskind, one of the world’s leading architects, who was chosen to redevelop Ground Zero in New York. Not many people know, however, that overlooking the sea near Puerto Andratx, he designed the home and studio where sculptor, Barbara Weil, has worked for 35 years.
