This is the Gallery of Ontario in Toronto Canada. The extension was designed by Frank Gehry in 2008. I chose it because I have been and seen this space and had my photo taken here in this light airy walkway. The wood is Douglas Fur. Gehry was brought up in Toronto but this is his first building there.
This is the Buchen Housing Estate by Santiago Calatrava, completed in 1997. Considerable smaller in scale that known work by Calatrava I selected it because It has be beauty of his larger work – look at that staircase but is works in a domestic setting.
These images are of the Zurich Law library by Santiago Calatrava. 1994. Maple wood is used here.
