You are invited to attend the closing reception and presentation on Martin Segger’s exhibit, titled “The Emergence of Architectural Modernism II: UVic and the Victoria Regional Aesthetic in the late 1950s and 60s”. 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 post-war Victoria’s urban landscape.
