During the long, cold winters in Ottawa, it’s always nice to get out to the National Gallery of Canada, if anything just to take in the natural light of a crisp day without having to wear more than a t-shirt.
Many have criticized the Moshe Safdie-designed building as being too cold and severe, but I disagree: it’s flooded with natural light, both in the atria as well as the inner galleries which are lit with skylights and mirrored shafts.
Just what the doctor ordered when the days are short and the temperatures low.
