The Art Gallery of Ontario is one of the largest galleries in North America with a collection of over 80,000 Canadian Art pieces. Its recent transformation includes increased art viewing space with an open, airy and easy to navigate layout. The all-round use of glass not only invites an abundance of daylight but also offers splendid views into downtown Toronto’s Grange Park District. In addition to gallery displays, the facility houses a research centre, a library, a restaurant, a café, a theatre, and a lecture hall. AGO continues to be the home of the world’s most renowned exhibitions. We provided full commissioning services on this exciting project.
