Here's the update on Randall Stout's Edmonton large-scale masterpiece --- the Art Gallery. For those of you that don't know, Edmonton has showed its pride for the Arts by housing some of the greatest works in history inside a cement square building. That's right. It's extremely embarrassing... like wearing a $300 silk dress with a pair of broken Birkenstocks. The facelift Randall Stout is giving the new Edmonton Art Gallery is much more brag-worthy...apparently one of my favorite architects Zaha Hadid submitted a concept for the building but she never made the cut, which means Edmonton has been fighting to put some more stellar, tourist-friendly architecture back on the map. People have been comparing it to ribbon, but to me it looks like a huge tidal wave since the building appears tipped over. Getting increasingly phenomenal by the week.
