Your country's unique museum (architecture)

Well, we beginning with the Museum called "Dortmunder U" its the town's landmark

The Dortmund U-Tower is a old brewery building in the city of Dortmund, Germany. It was the first skyscraper of Dortmund, built in 1926-1927. The high-rise Union Brewery used this building for the fermentation and storage of their products. In 1994 the brewery and all its surrounding buildings were closed and demolished, only the Dortmund U-Tower was spared due to having landmark status. In January 2008 the Dortmund U-Tower was decided to be redeveloped as a flagship project for the "Ruhr 2010 - Cultural Capital of Europe". Today it counts to one of Dortmund's central places, in which creative catering and event facilities are offered. Actual the "U" is one of the biggest projects in Germany with cost of over 50million euro.

More interesting information in english: http://www.dortmund.de/en/leisure_an...d_u/index.html

I think the effect of the new installed LED show is phenomenal, but look.

I guess for Canada it would be the new Libeskind "Crystal" addition to the century old Royal Ontario Museum:

the lineup to get in on opening day:



the original museum, which has not been damaged by the addition:
