a building complex designed by daniel libeskind will be built at the site of the former wtc.

which is fabulous.

daniel libeskind is an amazing, unconvetional, unpredictable, emotional, daring architect. - the jewish museum in berlin is one of the most notable buildings i have ever seen, the impact it has through its form is breathtaking.

people in the press have called libeskind's designs "manipulative" because he aims to invoke certain emotions - but i love them. the wedge of light that will be at the site of the wtc providing space without shadow each september 11th is medieval and sacred in its effect.

it's a daring building complex that's going to become characteristic for the new new york skyline.
