A celebration of Frannk Gehry's magnificent transformation of the Art Gallery of Ontario, seen through the lens of acclaimed photographer Edward Burtynsky
The AGO re-design of 2008 was Toronto-born Frank Gehry’s first building in Canada and marked the very place where he made the initial connection between art and architecture. Hallmarks of his AGO design connected the city and the Gallery in provocative new ways including,dramatic sculptural staircases, the warmth of Douglas fir, and the extensive use of glass to infuse the galleries with natural light. This book, published in 2009, features photographs by award-winning Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky and essays by Robert Fulford, Larry Wayne Richards and Matthew Teitelbaum.
