This adds so much weight to the old phrase "you'll always find it in the last place you look".  Wink

New motto for the Royal Ontario Museum:


"The thigh bone's connected to the, hip bone ...
Dem bones, dem bones, dem, dry bones..."



Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

Cut us a break, we were just way too busy allowing Daniel Leibskind to design some God awful addition to an otherwise nice building  Wink

Daniel Leibskind's designs seem to be love 'em or hate 'em. I just finished a paper on him as a postmodern archiect. He's designs are unique to say the least.

that is the sense i get from many. Architecture is one of those things that the general public has a very different sense of what is 'good' versus people in the field(professional architects and critics), and even people within each group can disagree. Sometimes i don't quite get how my views can be so opposite of architects/critics. I always think i am missing something, or maybe i am stupid when it comes to architecture.

I found it impressive that it towered over the sidewalk, although the glazing could have been better, but it was dark out when i walked by. I'm no architect, haven't been inside the ROM, so i couldnt tell you how well it works, but i found i liked it by walking by. I enjoy juxtaposition of old and new, and if this project has anything, its that.

I know I'm going a bit off topic here but...

I doubt your missing anything it's all in the eye of the beholder. Different types of architecture appeal to different types of people. I'm more a fan of Gothic architecture myself, older buildings, churches and the like. Although, since you appear to be familiar with Toronto, next time you're by the UofT library, it's supposed to be a peacock.

There's no doubt it has. Architecturally I respect Daniel Leibskiend, esthetically I don't really like him, but that's just me.

One of the criticisms of Postmodernist Architecture that arose in the early 1980's was that architecture had become too academic, and that architects had lost touch with what the majority of people considered to be nice. But architecture is just another form of art, some people love certain types, some people hate it.
