Over the years, Postmodernism has been accused of every conceivable form of fraud. It has been called ugly, superficial, derivative, and cravenly complicit to a profit motive.

Metro News
We are living in a momentous period of Toronto's history, as we witness the complete transformation of North America's fourth-largest metropolis into a new urban centre. Almost every city block seems to be under some degree of construction at the moment. Long ago, Toronto was disparagingly referred to as Hogtown.

First it melted cars, now it's blowing people over. One of London's newest icons, the so-called 'Walkie Talkie' skyscraper is facing claims that its design is causing a troublesome wind tunnel effect down a major city thoroughfare. The City of London Corporation is investigating an increase in the number of complaints about down-draughts at the base of the 160-metre skyscraper as powerful gusts of wind have seen workers blown over and signs knocked from buildings.
