I saw your piece on Daniel Libeskind's new extension to the London Metropolitan University on the Holloway Road and wonder if he needs some new glasses, or perhaps he can prescribe new ones for all of us.
This building is almost mundane and is certainly very ordinary in its detail and use of materials. I can see nothing exceptional about it except that it is almost devoid of rational geometry and must have exceeded the budget by a considerable margin.
Let's face it, he is an attentionseeking aberration within the architectural profession, promoting an approach to building that has nothing to do with Humanism, the human form or the future of the environment. Please do not kid yourself otherwise.
