I have been regularly keeping track of the work going on at the National Arts Centre, where a glass enclosure is being built around much of the structure, scheduled to be complete in time for Canada Day in a few months. The NAC remains open in the meantime for performances. You can see the last post here.
I took this first shot a few days ago, coming across the Mackenzie King Bridge after visiting a site that I'll be showing you in a few days. Snow was falling over the city, casting a gloomy feel across the NAC, the Canal, and Parliament Hill. You can also see that the skate shelters have been lowered onto the Canal's side for the winter.
A couple of days later I went around the north side of the NAC, along the Canal and over Plaza Bridge for some shots of the structure. The framing for the enclosure appears to be finished, and the crews are starting to add glass to what will be a primary entrance.
This final shot from the Mackenzie King Bridge that day strikes quite a difference from the weather in the first shot.
