As John Patkau said, art galleries are part of the public life of a city. In a recent article in the Vancouver Sun, Kevin Griffin discusses the design of the new Polygon Gallery located at the foot of Lonsdale in North Vancouver with John Patkau. The gallery opened to the public on Saturday, November 18th, 2017.
The article reveals that a driving factor in the design of the building is the “transparency” of the ground floor, an inviting attribute nearly unheard of in the gallery world due to the damaging effects of sunlight to art.
