Building Your AGA with Photographs by Edward Burtynsky

#AGAbuilding

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the AGA’s “new” building, this exhibition looks back at the initial drawings, concepts and models for this now iconic Edmonton landmark. When architect Randall Stout was designing the building, he was inspired by the geography of the City itself, primarily the organic curves of the river winding its way through the urban grid of streets and avenues. This exhibition includes photographs taken by renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky who was commissioned by the AGA to record the demolition and construction of the building in the years between 2007 and 2010.

Building Your AGA with Photographs by Edward Burtynsky is organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta, and curated by Catherine Crowston. Presented as part of the Poole Centre of Design.
