Explanation

The implication of the phrase a more permanent solution is that the original building was not permanent: it was a stopgap, or a “temporary fix.”

To “canonize” something literally means to “declare to be a saint,” but in its figurative sense, it means to “hold up as an exemplar,” or as a paragon. The third blank gets its clue from “originally,” indicating that you are looking for an opposite of “transient.”

A stopgap, paragon, perpetuity.
