Daniel Libeskind - new project in LA

Just read that Daniel Libeskind has designed a new 43-story building for LA downtown. I love his architecture for the Jewish Museum in Berlin. Mind-blowing!
And this one looks awesome too.

The Los Angeles City Council today approved plans for a new 43-story mixed-use building downtown, on South Figueroa Street just south of Staples Center.

The high-rise will include 273 residential units stacked atop an eight-level podium, restaurants and a spa. The project, approved 10 to 0, was supported by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Councilwoman Jan Perry, who represents that portion of downtown.

The project is backed by CA Human Technologies, a joint venture of two Korean firms, and the building was designed by Daniel Libeskind, best known for his Jewish Museum in Berlin and his much-altered master plan for the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan.

Here are some pics from the Jewish Museum in Berlin. Like I said, AWESOME architecture.
