THE ROYAL ONTARIO MUSEUM’S ‘CRYSTAL’ IN TORONTO MAY NOT BE LOVED, BUT AFTER DARK IT’S QUITE FINE

This entrance way addition is all angles of glass and aluminum in a powerful display. Behind The Crystal is the museum, known locally as The ROM. The glass and aluminum seem to jut out of the ground displaying power. It’s in sharp contrast to the stately ROM that has been standing there since 1914.  Urban Affairs writer Christopher Hume was a defender. He once said “It seems to express a desire to bring not just the Museum, not just the corner of Bloor and Avenue Road, but the whole city, into the 21st century without diminishing the past.”
