    They picked Libeskind? What’s that discredited moron got to say about architecture?

      Watch Daniel Libeskind’s 17 words of architectural inspiration at and see what a genius Libeskind is in Architectural Theory and in the presentation of lectures. Daniel Libeskind is THE GENIUS

    After the screw ups in Toronto and Denver, I guess Libeskind won’t be discussing his experience with waterproof detailing!! LOL!!!

    Seems to be a wasted opportunity giving up the lecture to this has-been.

  • PK

    Libeskind??? Who cares about what he has to say? They should have picked someone whose architecture is relevant.

    Should be good for a few laughs. It’s not like you can take him seriously.
