Larger than life Art/Craft/Architecture

Yesterday I saw on National Television a documentary on a Dutch artist. Never heard of the guy before.
It was on this project of his:

PS: The end of the story (quite sad):
The project in New York fell through, and the banking crisis proved fatal for some risky investments he made in real-estate, and the guy went bankrupt. The documentary captured about a year of his life, during which he presented and developed this project of his. The bad luck that befell him was, inevitably, part of it. The docu is in Dutch, so not much use in linking that here.
