The distinctive crystalline design will create an extraordinary range of spaces rich in form, light, and material that, together, will create an inspiring environment for research and creativity. Internal activity spaces have been designed specifically to encourage collaboration through openness and connectivity. The Centre will also serve as an exciting place for visitors, who will be welcomed to enjoy the facilities as part of an extended public outreach program of courses and events.

The facility will also include a multi-purpose theatre, sound stages, laboratories, classrooms, exhibition spaces, a cafe and a restaurant.  Secluded landscaped gardens to the north of the building will be available for students and the general public alike.

    This poor excuse for design foregets to address texture, pattern, materiality and most regreattable of all, it denies any relationship to the human scale.
     
    It's ridiculous, but then all of Libeskind's work is bad in that way.

    Ouch!! By any reckoning, that must be the ugliest, most thoughtless building of the year.

    Terrible. Like something from a D-list sci-fi film featuring someon'e lame idea of futuristic architecture. On what degraded or degenerate basis is this heap of rubbish supposed to be architecture?
