BUILDING TIME. On Thursday, the Art Gallery of Ontario detailed its plans for a new wing for modern and contemporary art, which is being designed by Diamond SchmittSelldorf Architects, and Two Row Architect, the Architect’s Newspaper reports. It will add about 40,000 square feet to the Toronto institution, a roughly one-third increase. Its cost has been estimated at about $73.4 million ($100 million in Canadian dollars). The space will be named for Dani Reiss, the chairman of Canada Goose, who has donated $25.7 million for the project. It is scheduled for a 2027 opening, and while such dates have been known to slip on occasion, the AGO’s director, Stephan Jost, offered this point, per the Art Newspaper: “I’m Swiss. I like to be on time and budget.”
