Transformation AGO: Twittering and TVO’s The Agenda

Twitter by day…

Today (Thursday) is the press preview of the new AGO. Architect Frank Gehry along with the AGO’s Matthew Teitelbaum will be hosting a news conference followed by various press-sorts-of-things. I will be Twittering the events of the morning and early afternoon — either check this page and follow along via RSS feed, or if you Twitter yourself, follow me the “traditional” way (you know what to do). As with all live-Twittering events, it may be a terribly boring exercise, but I will try and report on interesting moments and quotes. There may also be occasions when I ask for input from fellow Twitterers.

TVO by night…

In the evening Transformation AGO — and Toronto architecture in general — will be the subject of an entire episode of the TVO program The Agenda with Steve Paikin from 8-9pm. Guests include Architecture critics Lisa Rochon and Christopher Hume, Toronto City Councillor Kyle Rae, and myself. We will be talking about how new and old architecture can exist together in Toronto. They are encouraging folks to go to their website and email in questions — if there is time during the broadcast they will be used on air.
