This timelapse takes the project from demolition to opening.
2000 - 2010
At the groundbreaking for the crystal, Hilary Weston and Michael Lee Chin get to drive the shovel.
My mum would take us to the ROM during March Break when we were kids growing up in Huntsville, but I hadn't returned since then - the early 80's.
Daniel Libeskind is announced as the architect for the project, following an international search. He sketches (and submits) his idea on napkins from the ROM's restaurant.
I used to work as a volunteer in the ROM's Hands On Biodiversity Gallery in the early 2000s. I always loved coming to the Gallery and seeing the honey bees busily working away in their hive.
