A full house for Daniel Libeskind at the first in a series of events to support the aa's scholarship programme. Interlocutor Jonathan Glancey introduced him as 'one of the greatest story-tellers in contemporary architecture', and the discussion dwelled on the stories that the Jewish Musem Berlin tells. Glancey wondered what he would do when there isn't a story: would he design an office block? 'I don't think there is something that has no story,' said Daniel. 'It's a different level of problem but I wouldn't shirk it.' He insisted that 'form-making by itself is not something I'm interested in.' His charm and eloquence have seen off objectors to the Spiral at the v&a: 'Some people went red in the face to start with. But after I explained it to them they said: 'Well, I still don't like it very much but my daughter likes it'!'
