    If Libeskind’s horrible and retrograde designs are any hint of the future, then we should all check out now. I could not live with his brand of ugliness all around.

      I fully agree! His buildings “react” to suit his style… Not the way that a city should be developed.

    Libeskind’s work is disgusting. I would not let him design a bookshelf, much less influence the design if cities. That’s better left to serious people who understand community, harmony and context, not for egotistical imbeciles like Daniel Libeskind who care only about promoting their own brand of schlock, usually at the expense of fine cities..
