Say what you will about Daniel Libeskind, the guy is consistent. Even in the face of brutal amateur critics, ethno-national controversy, and attacks on his legitimacy, Libeskind barrels on through with his broken pottery aesthetic like a brick hurtling toward a greenhouse, or a P.T. Cruiser off the edge of a coastal bluff. Yesterday, on the architect's birthday, it was announced that Libeskind and an auxiliary team of museum planners, landscape architects, and artists beat out the likes of architect David Adjaye to design Canada's National Holocaust Monument. Titled Landscape of Loss, Memory and Survival, the proposal boils down to a slightly elongated Star of David, complete with the sharp angles for which Libeskind is famous. More info, over at Dezeen.
