"In his book Accidental City, author Robert Fulford says 'In Toronto, city-building has become an art of public revelation rather than private expression... The significant moment of change can be precisely dated: Monday, September 13, 1965, opening day at the New City Hall and Nathan Phillips Square. Modern architecture suddenly became legitimate and respectable.' In the words of architectural historian William Kilbourn, new City Hall is 'an enduring civic symbol that is one of the world's great buildings.'"
