The ROM Crystal In Pictures
The ROM opens today - for a week. Then it closes while the galleries are finished and exhibits installed. The critics are making their pronouncements like so many barberians at the gate (sorry, John Barber, I could not resist the pun). I've been holding off visiting the Crystal until the public is there. What will non-architects think? I'll find out this weekend and post my review on Monday. Until then, here is the history of the Crystal in pictures.
