Behind the AGO

Firstly, for those not in the know, AGO stands for Art Gallery of Ontario. This photo was taken in the park behind the AGO last winter during an outing with Mauro. It’s one of Toronto’s finer examples of good architecture, designed by famous Canadian-born architect Frank Gehry.

    This is the freakiest picture! It looks like some strange alien ship is floating above the brick building in front. Talk about NOT taking into consideration the surrounding architecture when designing a new building.

    I agree with Tracy on the almost freakish juxtaposition, almost looks like the Gehry was pasted in the photo, but it works very well at the same time. I’m a big fan of Gehry’s too.

    Thanks. I think the buildings behind the big blue box are related to the art gallery in some way and therefore not as “affected” by the addition.

  4. Wow, this is an interesting photo. I’ve never been behind this part of the gallery before.

  5. Few, glad those buildings are associated with the gallery. If I was an owner of one of them I’d been blasting someone in City Hall for it. 🙂 Really does shock the eye which is a good thing.
