Behold the World's Sole Example of Turkey-Shaped Brutalism

The folks over at Curbed Chicago know a thing or two about the Robarts Library at the University of Toronto; after all, editor Ian Spula was once a student there. Today they take an outward look at the building; completed in 1972, the steel-and-concrete behemoth was a collaboration between Mathers & Haldenby Architects and Warner, Burns, Town & Lunde, the credit behind Cornell's and Brown's libraries. Considered an important example of Brutalist American architecture, the edifice also resembles a turkey. Look closely.
