Cry freedom

What's going on in New York at the moment? There are many rumours emerging that the whole of Daniel Libeskind's Freedom Tower development might be shot because of the failed claim by the Twin Towers' site owner, Larry Silverstein. The property magnate wanted the insurance company to shell out twice because nine-eleven 'was two separate terrorist attacks'. Rather unsurprisingly he lost. And simultaneously the funding for architecture's most famous accordionist collapsed. One can only imagine what Danny might do if the work dries up in New York. Come to London and sort out his plans for the Spiral at the V&A? Pigs might fly.
