n autumn 2008 the transformed Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), one of the most distinguished art museums in North America, opened its doors. The museum's greatly expanded collections are displayed in a magnificent new building designed by the world-renowned architect Frank Gehry. In this beautiful book Gehry's innovative renovation of the AGO is captured through the lens of acclaimed photographer Edward Burtynsky. Fifteen spectacular full-page colour photographs, specially commissioned for this project, document the building during important phases of construction, while an informative illustrated essay by the journalist Robert Fulford explores previous iterations of the AGO.
