So what are the death spikes for? It can’t be another layer. :) Another safety rail.

For me, this has gone from what might have been a slick bit of modernism to a quirky little thing. Its detailing and textures, its curious colours against the grey (the orange, the blue and green of the roof) and its moderate scale all work unexpectedly together. In a good way. For its size, it's always got something to reveal.

It’s not as dramatic as OCAD, but like that build I feel like it’s gonna be fine once it’s open and used. I think the orange fins will weather, and/or end up with ads or art plastic wrapped on at some point.
 
Here's a closer look at what I believe is called, Palmer's Sedum. It'll be a whole new look up there come autumn, not that I'm trying to rush things...

Sedums aren't my area of expertise by a longshot, but I thought Palmer was only hardy to USDA zone 8 (up to 11) which is to say it would not like Toronto's winters.
