Art Gallery of Ontario, Existing Building, Toronto (1970)
This project series documents the existing Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) buildings in Toronto around 1970. The office identified the project number as 70056.
This project consisted of creating drawings of the two existing AGO buildings, before the start of construction on the AGO expansion. Beginning in 1969, Parkin’s firm was hired as the head architects for the AGO’s massive expansion program that would span more than a decade. This is one project relating to the expansion of the art gallery. The work for AGO projects was divided into 4 physical areas of the art gallery (A, B, C and D) and the drawings for this project reflect this division. 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 reprographic copies of area D drawings dating from around 1970.
Materials in this project series have been arranged by material type.
