Getting Out The Welcome Mat For Libeskind

New, 25 comments

Renderings of architect Daniel Libeskind's plans for downtown los Angeles have surfaced, and well, let us just say that it's nice to have a new name--architecture-wise--mentioned in plans for the neighborhood. Will this thing actually be built? We'll see. Meanwhile, for those with no knowledge of Libeskind, his most famous project is likely the Jewish Museum in Berlin (first image in gallery), more recent US works include the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, and anyone following the Freedom Tower/World Trade Center site drama knows that he was the original master-planner. But he was slowly shoved out of the way until not a trace of Libeskindmania remained. In the gallery: A sample of his completed projects (all info via the Libeskind Studio) as well as a rendering for One Madison Park, a planned New York development that raised the eyebrows of one critic. There'll be a Libeskind pop quiz later today. Brush up, everyone!
