This is a Grade 1 listed monument to the war damage caused to the museum in that place. A plaque has been placed on the wall to commemorate the bombing raids, and the wall has been left deliberately un-repaired so that passers-by can see what damage was caused.
I am interested to know what Mr Libeskind envisages doing with the colonnade and wall. I hope that neither are to be removed or demolished, since the whole point is that the war damage occurred in precisely that place.
