Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Canada
The Royal Ontario Museum's brick and terracotta building first opened its doors in 1914, but what makes it unique is the addition in 2007 of the Daniel Libeskind-designed Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, a dramatic new entrance for the museum.
The glass, aluminum and steel crystal has a deconstructionist design with jagged, sloping walls. The new structure features an atrium, restaurants and a "Spirit House," which was designed to be a place of reflection for visitors.
