Global hero

He may be embroiled in controversy over the Ground Zero building, but that has not stopped the upward rise of Danny Libeskind as all-round American star.

His latest role, as the result of a State Department appointment, will be as cultural ambassador for architecture. The job arises as a result of something called the 'CultureConnect' initiative, which is intended to foster understanding among young people around the world.

The first Danny mission was to Tunisia, where among other things he 'spent time talking to boy and girl scouts' and found time to drop in on Padua, where a 9/11 memorial is being created to his design, incorporating a piece of the World Trade Center. And he still can't get Lottery funding for the V&A Spiral?
