11:20 am
a time when president tribe has attempted to drastically reduce those allowed into the country this federal landmark largely avoids the topic. we wanted this to be a. liberal idea if you are defining. it it could be immigration or it could be something else but that's not. on the way out the statue of liberty's original torch which was replaced in 1986 is the final display of an experience it's hoped will shine a new light on one of new york's oldest attractions kristen salumi al jazeera new york. now one of the world's most famous architects i am pay as died at the age of 102 some of his works and the pyramid in paris and the 72 story bank of china tower and hong kong and the house newseum of islamic art was one of his last major projects or pay was widely known for his modernise architectural style he completed
11:21 am
on kong's bank of china building in 1809 the tallest skyscraper in asia at the time it was also during the 80s that he was appointed by former french president francois mitterrand to design the new pyramid and among his masterpieces and has adopted country the east wing of the national gallery in washington d.c. but we are going to get more on iron tayo and his legacy joining us from new york is paul goldberger he's an architectural critic author and columnist very good to have you with us on al-jazeera so he is hailed as one of the best architects good to be here one of the best architects of the past several decades what is it mr goldberger that made his work so unique. well i am pe was really one of those people who was able to push the envelope with innovative new things and yet make architecture that was interesting too to
11:22 am
a broad range of people so he could create a building like the national gallery in washington d.c. that was incredibly popular and yet was also evident guard so he was somehow able to almost magically blend the cutting edge with things that people were interested in and wanted and like and responded to so he made modernism modern architecture something that people loved as opposed to something that people hated which a lot of architects have done and you know as you've written and you just said something that i'm a lot of people loved you know has a pain wide not just museum boards real estate developers the corporate world. he managed somehow to bridge those worlds you know in much of architecture there are those that are serious architects who do very artistic architecture that is not of interest to the corporate world and they're the corporate architects who do
11:23 am
buildings to make money i am pay could never fit into either category and he made a career that was a bridge between those 2 categories he kind of almost brought all of architecture together and made a central point around his work that almost everybody could respond to and that was pretty amazing and you know here in doha we're fortunate enough to have his museum of islamic august which he puts so much into even though he was pushing 90 when it was commissioned. yes that's right and i've actually made 2 visits to the museum of islamic art in doha it's an incredible and extraordinary place but to me one of the most amazing things about it is that when i am pay got the commission to do it he admitted he didn't know that much about islamic architecture and he set out on a worldwide tour of islamic architecture to understand it better he then he read
11:24 am
a biography of the prophet muhammad i mean what architect does that kind of thing and he actually said i need to understand this to do it well and then he created this building that is in many ways a synthesis of his own ideas of western modern architecture which admittedly are not islamic and islamic traditions and he tried to find a way to synthesize these and bring them together in tribute really to the islamic tradition facing them that you know his 100th birthday cake was acting in the shape of the museum of islamic hotness to go but it is you know i think it's you know yes exactly really appreciate it thank you very much unfortunately yeah thank you i don't please go ahead actually thank you know is that there was an extraordinary celebration of his 100th birthday at the rainbow room and top of rockefeller center
11:25 am
in new york and indeed there was a cake in the shape of the museum was of islamic art in doha and i remember being honored to be there and seeing him sitting in his wheelchair blowing out the candles it was an amazing moment just to go away it really is great to have you and that is pull goldbug and i think you live in new york thank you. right moving on now and the united nations says at least 10 palestinian refugees were killed when rockets hit their camp in syria's aleppo province 4 children including a 6 year old are among those killed 30 others are believed to be wounded elsewhere at least 150 civilians have been killed as the government presses on with a week's long offensive in soviet northwest backed by russia the violence has put a strain on the cease fire agreement struck by turkey and russia last year as they know how the reports from beirut. people's lives have been destroyed while their neighborhoods are reduced to rubble during their home or the lot schools mosques
