ROM: VARIATIONS

ROYAL ONTARIO MUSEUM, TORONTO
Five intersecting crystals crash into Bloor Street, and people walk by as if nothing has happened. The chaos of angles and grids, the canted planes, the force with which the perfect shapes enter the earth . . . these are not from our world. I stand and look at the impossibility of it all, at the people sitting around, at my reflection in the green and looming glass. I feel an odd exhilaration.

    • I agree . . . some great buildings in Toronto. I mean, this Libeskind addition just a few blocks away from Frank Gehry’s addition to the Art Gallery of Toronto! And, there’s still lots of building going on. A fine place for an architecture buff with a camera. Thanks for commenting.
