Gehry + AGO

Looks like it’s “official” now, even though the news has been (sort of) out there for over a month. Frank Gehry will be redesigning — transforming, if you will — the Art Gallery of Ontario. With everything else that’s being built, I hope that by the next decade Toronto will no longer be one of the most architecturally boring metropolises in the world. If anything, I should hope that the new AGO will counter-act and counter-balance that god awful OCAD design.

XHTML doesn’t have the proper tags to fully emphasize just how awful it really is.

The scary thing is: OCAD is right next door to the AGO. God, that’s going to be some serious contrast of styles.
