Daniel Libeskind is no stranger to Australia and has visited Melbourne. It was something of a surprise to learn that, such was his following, the competition-winning team of Ashton Raggatt McDougal have deployed identifiably Libeskind architecture in the section of their Museum of Australia building which accommodates the Aborigines history. Instead of zinc sheet the walls are of blackened concrete. Otherwise, with a change of scale, the building is closely modelled on Libeskinds Jewish Museum masterpiece in Berlin.
For those who consider integrity and authenticity to be identifiable characteristics in architecture, the experience of the Canberra clone is chastening. Postmodernism still flourishes, however, in Melbourne although most of the world has moved on. Libeskinds best course of action would be to contact AciD, about the infringements created by the Canberra quotation. If he has time, that is.
