Silos and Museums what's up?


In yesterday's Toronto Star, they describe the new museum that they want to build in Toronto, as Martin Knelman writes, "adjacent to the giant Canada Malting Company silos." Here in Montreal, the Musée d'art contemporain wants to transform Silo No. 5 into part of their museum. Last October Mario Cloutier wrote that it was an idea on life support, although since then, Marc Mayer has told me he is still pushing ahead with it and believes it is an absolute necessity.

I just want to know what the fascination with Silos is all about.
