The Michael A. Lee-Chin Crystal building, which was designed by world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, is the newest expansion project to open in the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Ontario. The new and old building can be seen here.

The Michael A. Lee-Chin Crystal is the third expansion project undertaken by the Royal Ontario Museum, and this building was designed by the famous architect Daniel Libeskind, who also designed the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester, England, among many other buildings.

In this photograph, you can see both the new modern expansion and the older brick building of the original museum. There are still more expansions being made and all the work is expected to be completed by 2010.

Daneil Libeskind won an international design competition to build this new expansion and when he won he tore down the previous Terrace Galleries and replaced it with this deconstructivist design of architecture that is 25% glass and 75% aluminum. Michael Lee-Chin donated 30 million dollars to the building and that is why it is named after him. ... continue below the picture...

... It holds the new main entrance to the entire museum, a gift shop, restaurant, several galleries and the largest temporary exhibition hall in the whole of Canada.

The goal of the building is to blur the lines of the street outside and the beginnings of the older design of the original building. It wants to promote both openness and accessibility to the museum for everyone.
