Calgary seems to be light years ahead of almost every other "big-skylined" city worldwide in this regard. IMO they should've kept this beauty a single structure and stop wasting prime real estate erecting duplicates. It generates the perception that architects up there have locked themselves inside the very same boxes that many of us here would like to see them think beyond.
Oh really!? Well where in the US do you come from? I bet the architecture there is just lots'a boxes!
