      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!!!

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