Numero Uno

An exhibition entitled Sculpted Envelopes: The Architecture of Uno Prii – running at the University of Toronto’s Larry Wayne Richards Gallery – 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.
