Art Gallery Of Ontario Reenvisioned By Frank O Gehry
The transformed AGO has been transformed by the 70-year-old Frank Gehry, the Toronto-born architect who exploded architectural traditions on the international scene. The new AGO is Toronto-born Frank Gehry’s first building in Canada and marks the very place where he made the initial connection between art and architecture. Hallmarks of his AGO design connect the city and the Gallery in provocative new ways including,dramatic sculptural staircases, the warmth of Douglas fir, and the extensive use of glass which infuses the galleries with natural light. As you will discover, it is an extraordinary new home for extraordinary new art.
