Royal Ontario Museum

I'm blown away by the lypsyl veneer that Daniel Libeskind applied to the addition of the ROM.  Traditionally, glass is an affectionate medium used in many expansion projects because it reflects the existing structure with a muted, reverent tread.  In this case, mooching stature from the adjacent building, the glass planes of the expansion pose as an iconoclastic resuscitation to the existing urban fabric.
