History with dazzle

Who sez history gets no respect?  University of Toronto historians may be moving out of grim old Syd Smith and getting the quarters they probably feel they deserve
The University of Toronto is planning to build a dazzling new Centre for Civilizations and Cultures ....

The new centre will house U of T’s department of history, its department of near and middle eastern civilizations, the institute of Islamic studies and the research arm for the Tanenbaum Centre for Jewish Studies.
A New York starchitect firm will design the new building on the site of the former McLaughlin Planitarium.
