Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) & Grange Park


I watched a wonderful film on Frank Gehry last night so decided to show this pic of the south facade of his addition and redesign of the AGO, taken from Grange Park. Gehry grew up in the area and played in this park as a child so it seems quite suitable that he did the new design for the gallery! It is always quite a sight to look north from Queen St and see the beautiful blue titanium glowing behind the original Grange building.

This place is surreal, it looks like a film setting. Cool shot! ;-)

Interesting how the blue of the roof almost melts into the sky.

It is a dramatic building. The blue siding blends with the sky, except for the Gehry protrusions. I am not a fan of Gehry, but this particular project is pretty interesting.

A very cool design! Looks like a place which I'd like to visit!

Dramatic! I guess!

Wow, interesting, does look like a Gehry style. I would be interested in seeing any of his work up close in person. How nice that you have a piece so close.

This is amazing! I love Gehry's work but have never seen this. It's a fantastic shot!

Thank you so much for the congratulations.
