While comparing Main Street to the 403 may be appropriate in a sense, that's a conversation for another day. Equating the value of greenspace in a living, breathing downtown to that along a length of suburban freeway is a bit of a stretch.

It's precisely the windows and the rotunda that make the Board of Education building remarkable in its surroundings. It's not a brutalist, windowless, concrete cube that became the mode during the decades that followed its construction. It's the kind of building that other cities would cherish.
