Impressive, yes. Those steel workers won some sort of international award for what they accomplished here. I watched them work on that ROM webcam for a year. It's just ugly though and once you get past the "Wow, cool..." phase, what are we left with? It's an insult to the old building because it makes no attempt to harmonize - not a surprise, seeing as his original idea was sketched onto a napkin and didn't involve any of the surrounding buildings.
