Excellent Update!!

I will be in Toronto just in a few hours!

In 2000 I visited the ROM, I think this time will be a totally different experience!!

Regards/Saludos

I just recently got a job there. The official ribbon-cutting ceremony will be on June 2, and the next day it will temporarily be open to the entire public so people can see the architecture.

He designed the building so that there would be absolutely no right angles (even in the interior walls), so all exhibits will be shown in glass casings situated from the floor, or when paintings are exhibited, artificial walls will be temporarily installed.

some pics from May 3, posted by CDL.TO at UT.....this project is really having an impact at street level..





some of the aluminum cladding still has a plastic covering on it, hence the differences in shading....once the plastic is removed, should all be the same (lighter) shade....

Great! This is what I have come to expect of a project of this calibre. Toronto needs more night time lighting.

The ROM opening will be visually stunning, especially with Luminato's light show in the distance.

Great times for Toronto!

Luminato lighting at harbourfront, ROM lighting, and an announcement that the CN Tower will be lit up colourfully in the future.

Exciting!

So how long will the ROM be lit like that for? *wishes it was permanent*

Probably the ten days of Luminato.. but I don't know. Tonight is the ROM gala dinner ( I know one lucky guy going) and tomorrow is the official public opening.
I must try and get in to take photos.......
