Scope and Content

This project series documents the expansion of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) in Toronto from 1969-1974. The office identified the project as number 69006.

This project consisted of the vast expansion of the AGO that began in 1969, which largely came about due to a multi-million dollar donation from English sculpture Henry Moore. Most prominent in this project was the design and construction of the Henry Moore Sculpture Centre, a new gallery to house the extensive artworks of Henry Moore in the AGO’s collection. This included $15 million’s worth of art that Moore donated at the start of the project. The project was made up of two phases. The first included construction of the Henry Moore Sculpture Centre, the Sam and Ayala Zacks Wing, a link to the pre-existing Grange mansion, and updates to the art gallery’s finishes. The second phase proposed additional updates to existing finishes. By the end of this project, the architects had also added a public lounge, dining room and cafeteria, a members’ lounge, lecture areas (including the Henry Moore Lecture Hall), classrooms, and spaces for the gallery’s special services. The work was further divided into 4 physical areas of the art gallery (A, B, C and D) and the drawings for this project reflect this division.

Before this work had been completed, a “Stage II” to the expansion had already been approved by the owners (Stage II is also included in this fonds, see AP018.S1.1972.PR08). In the documentation, this project was originally called the Henry Moore Sculpture Centre, Art Gallery of Ontario, Expansion Phases 1 and 2. However, as multiple stages to the expansion developed later on, this project eventually became known as the Stage I Expansion. While the project contract was 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, textual records, and mounted photographs dating from 1968-1986. There are numerous original drawings showing the design development of the new galleries. Two presentation boards show photographs of the project model. The textual records consist of correspondence with contractors and clients, inspection and other site reports, specifications, contract data, consultancy records, schedules, change orders, financial documentation, conference reports, area calculations, research materials, detail planning records, and project notebooks. Box AP018.S1.1969.PR01.007 contains an index to the textual records, which was created by the office. This project series also contains one box of textual documentation that spans across multiple project series related to the AGO expansion within this fonds (see AP018.S1.1969.PR01.044). This includes press releases, newspaper articles, project proposals and studies, correspondence with Henry Moore, meeting minutes and reports.
