For every person who dislikes a cutting edge building there's a another person who'll find the same building an architectual masterpiece. I guess that's part of the reason we call them cutting edge. In terms of music and theatre Toronto is the cultural capital of Canada, and truly rivals the so called world class cities of the planet. Where it has lagged for years is architecture. Fortunately Libeskind and a few other creative architects are beginning to bring to Toronto contemporary forms of design that have long been part of the evolution of cities like Chicago, London, and Paris. The Crystal is not something we're accustomed to seeing in this country, but over time people will better appreciate it, as they did for Toronto's current City Hall.
