Libeskind: The Dark Crystal

98945368_9874d2b25d_o.jpg

Although we are never accused of being too nice, on the subject of the Danny Libeskind Crystal we posted about this morning, Kristen Richards writes, “You seem to have picked one of the milder reviews–did you check out arch critic Lisa Rochon‘s scathing tirade? And of course we hadn’t, or we would have posted it. Because it’s a nasty one. Rochon must be attending the Philip Nobel Night School for Architectural Criticism; she actually advocates tearing the Crystal down:

It won’t be that difficult to take down the Libeskind addition; its foundation is completely separate from the historic one and its walls barely touch the originals. What I see are hanging gardens draped over the raw steel beams. Natural light flooding the underground galleries. A Babylon for the 21st century.

The real gems, as always, are in the comments, where Rochon is accused of being anti-Semitic, anti-Starchitect, anti-innovation, a humor writer and lover of dark chocolate (we’re a little confused about that last one, too).
