Art Gallery of Alberta
Lord Cultural Resources was engaged to create the Master Plan for a new building for the Art Gallery of Alberta (formerly Edmonton Art Gallery). We commenced the process by facilitating a Staff and Board Visioning Session. Based on this vision, we formulated the Space Plan and Functional Strategy to renovate and expand the current facility on the existing site at Sir Winston Churchill Square, in Edmonton’s Arts District.
The result was the remodeled 85,000 square foot Art Gallery of Alberta in downtown Edmonton, designed by Los Angeles architect Randall Stout, featuring three floors of exhibition space that showcase historical and contemporary Canadian and international art.
The new building, featuring the decorative twist of steel wrapped around the converging glass walls, successfully opened on January 31, 2010. Features include a doubling of exhibition space, the new Singhmar Centre for Art Education, restaurant, gallery shop, and 150 seat theatre and direct access to Light Rapid Transit.
