Art Gallery of Ontario

Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is an art museum situated right in Toronto’s downtown Grange Park district, on Dundas Street and is the 10th largest museum in North America. In 2008, the museum’s $276 million redevelopment project was completed by the plan of architect Toronto born Frank Gehry and received wide acclaim for the design.

Personally, I think the architectural concept is beautiful. As shown above, the combination of the lighting and structure is stunning.

Another beautiful concept at the AGO is this unique circular grand staircase.

Here’s another piece of art that uses a simple linear concept and lighting for this cool cube

 

Paper Bathroom

This bathroom is really cool because it’s transparent! Is it supposed to signify something to the lack of privacy or something?

 

Mini city

I thought this was amazing. I love minuscule things. So cute!

As mentioned before, The Art Gallery of Ontario does not only house conceptually beautiful pieces of art work but is beautiful itself. Love this hallway.

Each room at the AGO is different according to the pieces of art it holds.

This was my favourite room. So beautiful.

Some art, I think is a bit weird. Like this room. Haha.

You can see The Ontario College of Art & Design from the AGO. Isn’t it crazy cool? A building on stilts? Only at the OCAD!
