FEBRUARY 13 TO APRIL 27  Visit one of the city’s best-designed buildings to discover the man behind even more admirable Canadian architecture. This spring, the Gardiner Museum examines the legacy of midcentury architect Ron Thom, known for his work on Massey College in Toronto and Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. Originally a visual artist, Thom believed that every detail was important to his structures, right down to the textiles and ceramics with which they were decorated. As such the exhibition features paintings, photographs, architectural drawings, furniture prototypes, ceramics and more, to offer a unique perspective on how, in design, small details can inform a much wider vision.  —Brock Sutherland
