Periodical Sarcasm

John Barber's column in today's Globe and Mail is just full of it.
Looking to add to your social dynamic? Just read it. Pfffft.
The disappointing in the article is that the Hummingbird Centre is referred to
as a homely Toronto landmark. I think this is where the journalists credibility is lost.What is Das Boot? Is it not a film? Forget the posturing of politicians and economic indicators the proposed 'L' has several other aesthetic obstacles. If there ever was a reason to wish for a recession.....

Browsing Toronto Architecture Awards

So there seems to be many awards being issued in the past few weeks.
The OAA even has a People's Choice Award. We are even awarding the
'ugly'. There is also people speculating about the Toronto Style and what it is.
Apparently several 5 year old europeans have this architectural knowledge. It reminds me of reading movie reviews. I guess every building has an award and if does not then why not create one. It's like reading headlines from that columnist in the New York Times who called it a 'must-see'. What's their name again? Or were they from the Chicago Tribune? Globe and Mail? I'll bet you it's all those design shows on TLC causing problems.....
