The new National Music Centre in Calgary is a visually stunning building. In the main, one goes there for the wealth of Canadian musical culture on display, but I go there as well for the architecture.

This scene reminded me of the Leonard Cohen lyric, “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.”
