Art Gallery of Ontario

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.

Structurlam proposed and executed an alternative design for [our] Glulam roof that resulted in significant cost savings and simplified the shipping and storage requirements.
