The office tower in All that Glitter is, by any account, an eccentric modern building... The building could be a mere curiosity, but isn't. The reason relates both to its scale, which, while grand, is not inhuman, and to the warmth and attractiveness of a form which far exceeds its function. In a city the size of Regina, the building not only works but it can perhaps be seen to symbolize a modernism that, in a capacity to adapt itself to circumstance and place, embodies the desire to please and refresh that so vividly animates the architecture Thauberger has found so intriguing.
