Am I missing the point of Libeskind Spiral?

  • Comment

A spokeswoman for the Victoria and Albert Museum (AJ 10.5.01) said of the reduced Libeskind Spiral that the appearance (of the exterior) of the revised building would be identical to the original and that 'only' the interior would be changed. So that's alright then.

Am I being impossibly out of touch in continuing to believe that what distinguishes architecture from sculpture is the spaces it creates, both inside as well as outside? Please can somebody point me at a CPD course so that I can be re-educated in the New Monumentalism?
