I've been occasionally marking progress at the work going on around the National Arts Centre, where a glass enclosure is going to be added. My last post on it can be found here. These shots are from early this month, on a day when I decided to concentrate on things from the north side. These views, from Plaza Bridge over the Rideau Canal, show some of what's going on- it appears that elements of the facade have been stripped away.
Coming closer, the NAC is in the background beyond this statue of Andrew Hamilton Gault, a politician and brigadier who founded the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry at the beginning of the First World War. It's been quite awhile since I've featured him.
Coming down towards the Rideau Canal, the work is partially hidden behind a barricade wall. The worksite entrance itself wasn't open- the shot was taken through the gateway.
Returning back up from the Canal, I took this shot of the Chateau Laurier and Plaza Bridge.
And to finish, here we have another view of the NAC from the northwest. That steel frame is new from the last time I featured the work site, and will be part of the glass enclosure yet to come.
