It may be utilitarian, but hey, it's pseudo art-deco and it's got the trademark yellow London bricks.



Your tax dollars at work, folks.

I just read an interesting article from Friday's National Post entitled "Governments Just Don't Get Cities", which pointed out that massive civic megaprojects like this one tend to hurt the urban fabric far more than they help it, and that running a city via a huge government bureaucracy tends to encourage crap like this rather than smaller, more beneficial local projects. I would post but for some reason I can't find it anywhere- may scan and upload it depending on what copyright laws allow.
