One of the most distinctive architectural features of the Frank Gehry-designed Art Gallery of Ontario is the Douglas fir-clad sculptural staircase. It rises from the second floor of Walker Court, through the glass ceiling and extends to the fifth floor of the Vivian & David Campbell Centre for Contemporary Art.
In designing the signature staircase, Gehry remarked that he hoped its warmth and intimacy would beckon visitors and become a place where people fall in love. I did, while taking a few images during the visit to the gallery. It’s has been 10 years since this masterpiece opened to public.
