a personal reflection on the ROM's new addition...

heinous. le heinous. l'architectural turd. a sharp and cavernous turd that activates the vomit reflex.

it is a bringer of doom...

and other things with really sharp teeth.

it thinks its glass panes are full of dazzling magnificence. it thinks its pointy bits erupt in anti-orthogonal splendor. it thinks it's a long-overdue improvement on the fortress of solitude. it thinks people come from all corners of the earth to bathe in its radiance.

when really, the people who come from all corners of the earth point and laugh and wonder what happened to the rest of the windows.
