"Starchitects" - The Hottest Architects
Foster, Gehry, Libeskind, Pei - architects today are part of a burgeoning creative class enjoying name-brand recognition, global acclaim and brand power like never before. It's not uncommon for world travelers to seek the "latest Gehry" or the newest Norman Foster building. While housing museums, art galleries and other cultural institutions, the architecture itself often shines as brightly as the art inside.

Calling All Sun Lovers

Large arrow left

I went to Toronto for the first time in the fall of 2010. I expected it to be colder, but I wasn't exactly thrilled that Toronto's fall was like New York's winter. So I was happy to spend a good amount of time indoors in galleries and museums. AGO was one of them, and as a huge Frank Gehry fan I was even happier to spend an almost ridiculous amount of time staring at the AGO building.

Eventually, I walked toward the back and into the glorious Galleria Italia. All empty on a weekday, the play of wood and light was simply beautiful. It will make you smile, adore the sun, and just stay.
