The opening reception for this new exhibition takes place on Thursday, October 8, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm in the Larry Wayne Richards Gallery at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at 230 College Street in Toronto. All are welcome.
Sculpted Envelopes: The Architecture of Uno Prii will show 63 drawings, photographs and paintings by Toronto-based, Estonian-born architect Uno Prii (1924-2000). The work featured in the exhibition will include architectural designs for apartment buildings, shopping malls and office towers primarily from the 1960s. The futuristic vision of Prii’s work belies the fact that he was a remarkably proficient practitioner with some 300 extant buildings in Southern Ontario.
The exhibition runs until October 26, 2009.
