This exhibition opens on Thursday, April 30, 2009 at 6:00pm at the Eric Arthur Gallery at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design, University of Toronto, and closes on July 17, 2009.


architecture e+c: work of elin + carmen corneil 1958 to 2008 was mounted at Carleton University’s Azrieli School of Architecture as part of its 40th-anniversary event. The exhibition shows selected work from the Corneil practice held by the Canadian Architectural Archive in Calgary, supplemented by documents from recent years, photographs, and nine models of components which underscore the exhibition’s themes.


Elin Corneil graduated from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, in 1961. She is a member of the Norwegian Architectural Association, and has taught in architectural design programs at the Ontario College of Art, the University of Toronto, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and since 1986, at NTNU.


A graduate from the University of Toronto (1957), Carmen worked a year at Alvar Aalto’s office in Helsinki, was registered at the Ontario Association of Architects in 1960, and joined the staff at the University of Toronto School of Architecture in 1967, retiring in 1995 to Norway to practice, teach, build, and draw. During the early 1970s, the Corneils collaborated with Jeffery Stinson on several studies and projects, notably the Carleton Architecture building (above), and Toronto Harbourfront.


This exhibition was produced with support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the University of Auckland.
