Alien Ship Crashes into Dresden's Museum of Military History

New, 9 comments

Okay, okay, so this is really starchitect Daniel Libeskind's design for the revamped Museum of Military History in Dresden, Germany, but it sure looks like a shard of an alien ship has split the museum's original 1873 building. That's one mighty large shard too—it climbs to 100 feet above the street—and it matches the gargantuan size of the museum itself. At 150,000 square feet, the Museum of Military History is the largest museum in the country. Perhaps the violent interaction between Libeskind's addition and the original building is meant to mirror the fractured relationship Germany has with its military history, but, for some critics, it's simply more of the same from the Polish-born architect.
