A new musical production by always provocative avant-garde theater director Robert Wilson collaborating with songwriter/ musician Tom Waits.

A conversation between Paul Goldberger, the New York architectural critic, and Witold Rybczynski, renowned architectural historian. How flamboyant architecture of today effects cultural discourse.
