Scope and Content

This project series documents renovations to the restaurant, lobby, and offices at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) in Toronto in 1979. The office identified the project number as 7902.

The project consisted of renovations to the existing AGO Grange Court Restaurant and its kitchen including an increased seating capacity, additional shelving, acoustic improvements, and a larger waiting area. Although this project title, found in the materials, reflects only restaurant renovations, the project also consisted of renovations to the education offices and gallery lobby. 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. 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 restaurant drawings, restaurant photographs, and textual records dating from 1978-1980. The textual records consist of progress billing invoices for the restaurant and education offices, client correspondence, and a stipulated price contract.
