Libeskind in Toronto to Promote, Defend ROM

With the dinos now on display, it was media day at the ROM today. The Post, The Globe, Citytv and a host of other media outlets were each alloted 10 minutes to interview Daniel Libeskind, the celebrated (or maligned depending on who you ask) architect of the ROM's Michael Lee-Chin Crystal.

I had hoped to talk to the globetrotting architect about the fake bomb but he hadn't heard the news. Said Libeskind "There are a lot of bombs around the world. You can't follow all of them." So instead we settled on the media's reaction to his work, what he would change about the design, and the state of architecture in Toronto. All of this and more in my brief (2 minute) video interview with him below:
