TPL’s off-the-shelf Windows boxen look like shit on a custom-built, Moriyama-designed Corian workspace. Dozens of these atrocities will be installed, all because nobody at the Toronto Public Library has enough taste to notice they clash.
By the way, people are sure to endlessly trip on the raised Corian bases of these units, especially the young FOB/ESL/English-student demographic that heavily uses the Reference Library. The slipshod, half-assed, homemade, haphazard, second-rate solution? You heard it here first: Warning signs banged out in Arial and taped up on walls, an off-the-shelf industrial carpet laid down on the Corian, and yellow tape adhered along the edge to make it more “visible.”
