Ambitious of What?

Via OTRO blog, comes the latest news of Daniel Libeskind’s “ambitious plans” (Der Spiegel’s words), which this blog compares to plastic surgery on an aging drag queen (en español). (My apologies to drag queens for being compared to Libeskind’s perpetual copy machine). In addition to architecture observers, the building apparently has not managed to please, well, anyone…

The building has already attracted its share of controversy, however. Student representatives have complained that it is “not practical,” while state-level politicians have criticized the fact that funding for construction was uncertain. Even local environmental activists are upset: Two pairs of crested larks, an acutely endangered bird species, were discovered on the site.
