Every year at cherry blossom time, I try to get a photograph of the University of Toronto's Robarts Library. I love the combination of pink and grey. I am among the few who admire this building; others call it "an oppressive, stone Transformer with little access to sunlight."

I have written about it a few times on TreeHugger, rounded up here on its fortieth birthday.
