加丁纳博物馆是世界优秀陶瓷艺术机构之一,也是加拿大唯一一家此类博物馆。它也被指定为多伦多的文化复兴项目。该重建项目连同街对面的皇家安大略博物馆、布尔西街转角的多伦多皇家音乐学院,形成了一处新的城市文化区。原有结构由Keith Wagland于1984年设计,新结构就建立在其上。三层的扩建和原有结构向街道扩张为博物馆创造了大胆的形象,同时也尊重原有建筑的规模。博物馆以前的粉红色花岗岩外观被替换成抛光浅黄色石灰岩,与附近莉莲•梅西和安妮皇后风格的新古典主义玛格丽特•艾迪生大楼的古老立面和山形墙互为呼应。博物馆前面用一系列阶梯状平台重新美化过,向街道敞开了怀抱,创造出一连串诱人的休闲与正式聚会的室外空间。

扩建部分占地约1300.6平方米,使博物馆能举办各种国际性当代作品展,向人们展示种类数量更胜以往的永久收藏品。对地下停车场也进行了修缮改建,挖掘1米深,创造了亟需增加的空间,用于教育工作室和策展空间,来支持博物馆不断发展的大众社区外展计划和研究活动。设计也极大提高了博物馆的创收潜力,在面对女王公园一侧增加了一家新零售店、可出租的多功能活动空间,以及杰米•肯尼迪管理的目的地餐馆。

原有的平面设计完全换过,通过递升展开的走廊确定了一条从地面到新三楼的博物馆之旅。还设置了窗户和露台,让来宾欣赏女王公园、多伦多大学和市中心天际线等美景,这在以前是无法想象的。


The Gardiner Museum is one of the world’s preeminent institutions devoted to ceramic art, and the only museum of its kind in Canada. It is also designated as one Toronto’s cultural renaissance projects. The renewal project, together with the Royal Ontario Museum across the street and the Royal Conservatory of Music around the corner on Bloor Street West, will form a new cultural precinct for the city. The renewal builds on top of the original structure, designed by Keith Wagland in 1984. The third floor expansion and extension of the original footprint to the street creates a bolder image for the Gardiner, while respecting the intimate scale for which the original building was admired. The former pink granite exterior was replaced with polished buff limestone, setting the Gardiner in dialogue with the historic facades and pediments of the adjacent neo-classical Lillian Massey and Queen-Anne style Margaret Addison buildings. The front of the museum was completely re-landscaped with a series of terraced platforms that bring the Gardiner to the street, and create a series of inviting outdoor spaces for casual and formal gathering.

The strategic addition of approximately 14,000 sqf allows the museum to host international exhibits of contemporary works, and to showcase the expanding permanent collection. The adaptive reuse of the underground parking garage, excavated by one meter, creates much-needed space in which to accommodate educational studios and curatorial spaces to support the Gardiner’s evolving popular community outreach programs and research activities. The design also greatly enhances the museum’s revenue-generating potential with a new retail shop that faces Queen’s Park, rentable multi-purpose event space, and a destination restaurant managed by Jamie Kennedy.

The existing plan was completely reconfigured to define a journey through the galleries that unfolds in ascending order, from the ground to the new third floor. Windows and terraces are positioned to offer visitors previously unimagined vistas of Queen’s Park, the University of Toronto, and the downtown skyline.
