Daniel Libeskind

Daniel Libeskind’s recent project, a series of signature prefabricated homes, is a drastic change from his usual commissions. Although a smaller project (5,500 square foot), the residence strongly speaks his language of design with drastic angles, strong geometries and seamless transitions between spaces.  In this ever-growing age of prefab dominance, Libeskind’s villas will be able to be shipped to almost any location in the world within months, and will be assembled on site by a team of experts within weeks.

About the author

After working at various design practices on a full-time and freelance basis, and starting his own design firm, David McFadden saw that there was a gap to be filled in the industry. In 1984, he created an expansive hub for architects and hiring firms to sync up, complete projects, and mutually benefit. That hub was Consulting For Architects Inc., which enabled architects to find meaningful design work, while freeing hiring firms from tedious hiring-firing cycles. This departure from the traditional, more rigid style of employer-employee relations was just what the industry needed - flexibility and adaption to modern work circumstances. David has successfully advised his clients through the trials and tribulations of four recessions – the early 80’s, the early 90’s, the early 2000’s, and the Great Recession of 2007.

    For Libeskind, LEED is just another marketing ploy to sell the same old idea he has been cranking out for years. But I doubt Libeskind even knows what the LEED acronym signifies.

    In Manchester, Libeskind’s Imperial War Museum was singled out to receive the UK’s worst possible energy rating, and was declared an abysmal energy guzzler.

    Here, the wasteful surface area to volume ratio is the first give away that energy was not really on Libeskind’s mind when he “designed” this. And not knowing the location, the siting, the orientation or the local climate, how responsible to energy needs can it be anyway. Take the very large window areas. Depending on the site they could end up facing north or south with potentially disastrous results for heat gain or heat loss.

    This project is bogus on so many levels it is a joke. But then so is Libeskind himself.
