^ Coincidentally, it looks like half of Ryerson University's buildings and the University of Waterloo's buildings.

Brutalism is Ontario's institutional legacy as much as Gothic Revival!

I like it more than the Ryerson library, but I only saw glimpses of Waterloo

Yeah, Ryerson's Library Building and the attached podium are awful.

Waterloo is also mediocre.

I personally still like the Ryerson Library, particularly the podium, but I like the UofT building more.

This would look so good painted.
A white exterior with orange in the balcony spaces, with brown or wood-printed window frames to emphasize its vintage 1970s look.

I think any color would look good, taking the current condition of the building.
