The Emergence of Architectural Modernism II: UVic and the Victoria Regional Aesthetic in the late 1950s and 60s at The Legacy Art Gallery
During the late 50s and 60s, a small number of legacy architectural
firms changed Victoria's built environment with forward-looking planning and bold new architectural forms. Using plans, drawings, photographs and architectural models from the period, this exhibit explores a number ofplanning initiatives, design projects and building programs that definedthis important phase in the development of the Capital Region.
This is the second in a series of exhibitions and publications exploring
the relationships, personalities and projects contributing to the
development of a regional modernist aesthetic in the post-war Victoria
urban landscape. This exhibition develops themes of the earlier exhibition Town and Gown: Centennial Square and the Gordon Head Campus: Seminal Projects (1962–1972) March 10–May 2, 2011.
This free exhibit runs November 30, 2011, to February 26, 2012, at the
Legacy Art Gallery, 630 Yates Street. Hours are Wednesday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
