Architect to create new star for Rockefeller Christmas tree

NEW YORK — Architect Daniel Libeskind (LEE'-behs-kihnd) is working on a new crowning achievement: a new star for the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree.

Crystal company Swarovski (swahr-AHV'-skee) made the announcement Thursday, half a year before Santa season. The star will be "inspired by the cosmos."

It makes its big debut Nov. 28.

It's the first redesign of the supersize tree-topper since the inaugural Swarovski Star was unveiled in 2004.
