Now that is totally different

Steeles West subway station gets hip, downtown facade – thestar.com.

10 for creativity and being different.  I have no idea what number I’d give for liking it.  One thing for sure – it is different.  I wonder if folks out along Steeles Avenue will appreciate this one.  The new Steeles West Station is designed by Will Alsop.  The same British architect that came up with the Ontario College of Art and Design’s building downtown.  Although when I first saw OCAD’s giant checkered floating shoebox supported by super long steel crayons, I didn’t like it.  However, it has grown on me and I think it’s a great Toronto icon.  We’ll see about this one.
