20 Prince Arthur

As you walk west from Yorkville through the Annex you come across another of the wonderful buildings designed by Uno Prii. Apparently this was his favourite of the 250 apartment buildings he designed in Toronto and it easy to see why. Built in 1968, the 22 storey buttresses combined with the beautiful large gardens surrounding it make it a real landmark in the city.

I LOVE Uno Prii.
I remember when these buildings were built and we used to drive downtown to see them. I didn't know anything about him or the significance of the apartment buildings at the time, but even at age seven I appreciated this style of architecture!
Did you happen to go on a walking tour of his Annex works back in Feb?

VioletSky - No I didn't know about the tour - I would have loved it. Have got pictures of more buildings to come soon. I love his work too.
