Michael Lee-Chin Crystal

8th wonder of the world, or butt ugly?  -- NEX-5 & 18-55mm Kit lens. Click to enlarge

This is an interesting building located at the corner of Bloor St. & Queen's Park.  A new addition of the Royal Ontario Museum which cost $270 million dollars to build, and opened to the public in 2007.  The building was name after billionaire Michael Lee-Chin who donated $30 million for this new building. The public reaction of te design of the building  is a mixed bag.  Some name it one of the 10 ugliest buildings in the world, and others hail it as a monument.  Personally, the building doesn't jive with me.  It's too radical for my taste, but then again I am no architectural critic.
