Is The World Ready For More Turkey-Shaped Brutalist Architecture?

Our cousins over at Curbed Chicago know about this Toronto library that invokes the most cubist kind of turkey imagery imaginable. It is the Robarts Library at the University of Toronto and, fittingly, the rare books collection is stored right in the neck-like part of the structure. Curbed National contributes some more of the history, with the note that the building was a joint effort between Mathers & Haldenby Architects and Warner, Burns, Town & Lunde in 1972.
