What a splendid turn-out at the Soane for the launch of the small but perfectly formed Daniel Libeskind exhibition. New knight Sir Richard MacCormac was in attendance, as were luminaries including filmmaker Murray Grigor, Te r r y Farrell and Charles Jencks. One hot topic of conversation: will Libeskind's V&A extension be built?
Will it depend on who takes over as director? More than half the money is raised but there is still plenty to be done. Curiously, if built, the extension will be the only major central London millennium project which is actually visible, all the rest being hidden from the outside. Keep the money coming.
