Rows of 60-foot sweeping arches combined with extensive glazing bring art appreciation to a new level in Canada. The Art Gallery of Ontario was transformed by world-renowned architect, Frank Gehry.

Highlights of Gehry’s vision include the use of Douglas-fir glulam arches, steel and glass. Controversial, swept with light, the amber of wood and the views of sky and city, the AGO is an indelible architectural landmark.
