Studio Daniel Libeskind design of the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto 

Bregman + Hamann Architects is working with Studio Daniel Libeskind in joint venture partnership on the Royal Ontario Museum's ambitious $270 million transformation project which will ensure its vital growth and development locally, nationally and globally. Libeskind's sculptural Michael Lee-Chin Crystal addition transforms the ROM experience, creating a new landmark entrance along Bloor Street and providing dynamic gallery space.
Renaissance ROM creates bold new architecture, retrieves the best of the historic architecture, and improves visitor circulation and public amenities. It will result in more than 388,000 square feet of new and renovated gallery and public space overall. Ten renovated galleries opened in the historic buildings on December 26, 2005; the architectural opening of the Lee-Chin Crystal took place on June 2, 2007, and ten more renovated galleries will open in the historic buildings by early 2009.
