'If these guidelines are adopted, Mr Childs, Jean Nouvel, Fumihiko Maki and Norman Foster - architects whose experience, talent and professional expertise vastly exceed Mr Libeskind's - would be reduced to the level of executive architects, producing working drawings for designs they had no hand in shaping'

Herbert Muschamp on Libeskind's 'design guidelines' for Ground Zero. New York Times, 8.11.03

'When we were invited at the same time to participate in the competitions for Ground Zero in New York and CCTV in China, we went for the competition in China because that seemed to provoke an architecture that was more serious than any architecture that could be built in America at this moment'

Rem Koolhaas. Japan Times, 5.11.03

'Juxon House is a monstrous blunder. Surely its developers and architect did not imagine passersby would be fooled into thinking this lumpen office block was a worthy companion for St Paul's'

Christopher Wren's biographer Lisa Jardine. Guardian, 10.11.03
