Libeskind centre radiates bad fortune

Studio Daniel Libeskind's PR letter (AJ 4.11.04) was yet another example of egocentric architecture based on a spurious esoteric idea.

If Studio Libeskind really consulted a Feng Shui master for the Creative Media Centre for City University, Hong Kong, then why the inauspicious composition of a 'cutting tool and plough' with corners projecting and radiating bad fortune on to its neighbours? Why the straight angular lines that attract the 'bad breath' of Sha?

Perhaps the 'master' could be employed to advise any neighbours and visitors where to hang ba-gua mirrors or small tridents to stave off the effects of this unhealthy white crystal.
