MIT alleges flaws in Gehry building - Yahoo! News

Uh oh.  The Art Gallery of Ontario looks strangely familiar to this building...

So it has a few problems and cost over $315 million dollars.  It looks cool... 

The school asserts that the center, completed in spring 2004, has persistent leaks, drainage problems and mold growing on its brick exterior. It says accumulations of snow and ice have fallen dangerously from window boxes and other areas of its roofs, blocking emergency exits and causing damage.

The AGO is estimating it will cost $500 million to redo their design.  I hope it will handle the snow load!
