I hate Libeskind. He has ruined a proud and handsome building with a vomit of glass and metal.

At no point does the new structure even touch the existing building, no matter how close they are. Doesn't even have one tiny bolt going into it. The new structure is a completely separate entity. They were very careful to do this to try and prevent people saying they have ruined the old building. That, rather obviously, didn't work.

well that's quite impossible to totally avoid that

I like it..as you said, the new, modern part seems to be a seperate building, but at the same time it seems to expand directly out of the old building..

awsome..

Deconstructivism is the new black... as it was last season, and as it is going to be for the foreseeable future.

To think this amazing timeless skyscraper was built nearly 80 years ago is mind boggling

Ahh, Art-Nouveau, truly sublime style, on par with Gothic and Deconstructivism.

This comment has been said by quite a few people... who seem to forget that that side of the ROM had next to nothing there before the "Crystal" was built.

Maybe the juxtaposition is what "ruined" it for you... but it definitely didn't cover much up over the old building... at least cover much that mattered.

My only complaint is that the cladding was a disappointment given the renderings that they presented originally. It's hardly crystal-like.

Also, there are already a few other similar designs out there by Libeskind. They being the Denver museum and the MGM Mirage Centre in Vegas... and I seem to recall seeing a school or college building that looked like it too somewhere... and the Hong Kong Media Center. So the ROM addition is no longer all that "special" to anyone who loved it.
