Agree, it's a complete dud. I have no issue with the garish commercialism on the exterior, but they forgot to design a building behind it. They just built a metal shed to hang the advertising on. This should have been Toronto's opportunity to build a show piece on par with the Pompidou Centre in Paris, but we got a giant trailer shell with escalators.
Even the height is wrong. Its current height should have been the podium upon which a tower rose. The podium could still house cinemas, exhibit space, but incorporating design worthy of a university building/museum.
I avoid this building at all costs and make a point of not giving any money to businesses inside. They need to tear it down and start again. It's a monumental disaster.
