44 Walmer Road

Across the road from yesterday's post is another example of architect Uno Prii's take on Modernism. Constructed in 1969, it continues his futuristic style but unfortunately a large part of the effect was destroyed in 2000 when the original balcony railings were replaced. The original railings were white with large circular openings in them which continued his exploration of circles. It was good to see the fountain functioning though.

Looks like that fountain has been recently refurbished - I want one in my back yard!

Agreed - I moved out after the railings were changed. It destroyed the building's modernist appeal. I must add that some of the old-school residents in the neighborhood HATE this building.
