Scope and Content
This project series documents the design of custom furniture for the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto from 1971-1973. The office identified the project number as 7117.
This project consisted of custom furniture designed for the Art Gallery of Ontario during its major expansion program, which began in 1969. It should be noted that while AGO project contracts were originally given to John B. Parkin Associates, John C. Parkin continued the project under his new firm, Parkin Architects Planners, after parting ways with partner John B. Parkin in 1971.
The project is recorded through drawings dating from 1972-1973 that consist of furniture details and plans.
