Vivian Marino of the NY Times interviews Daniel Libeskind, architect of the Denver Art Museum's 2006 expansion at 13th and Acoma and master plan architect for the reconstruction of the NYC World Trade Center complex post 9/11. From the interview:

Q: Many call you a “starchitect.” How does that make you feel?

A: I couldn’t care less. But the truth is people have rediscovered architecture. Ground zero had a lot to do with raising expectations, because it was a public process and people were very involved and there was an emotional resonance.  I consider this a renaissance: a rediscovery that architecture isn’t just a bunch of concrete slabs, that it’s cultural and has to have a sustainable idea to it.
