"Bay Parkade Entry 1960"
"Bay Parkade Entry 1960" by Hubert Norbury
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 the Gordon Head Campus: Seminal Projects (1962–1972) March 10–May 2, 2011.
During this period a small number of legacy architectural firms changed Victoria's built environment with forward-looking planning and bold new architectural forms. Drawing on plans, drawings, photographs and architectural models from the period, this exhibit explores a number of planning initiatives, design projects and building programs that defined this important phase in the development of the Capital Region.
