A pub in Fernwood, Victoria. Trying to be what it isn’t.
Pentax Espio 120SW, Agfa Vista Plus 200, commercially processed and scanned.
Apparently the Saanich Municipal Hall built in 1965 was inspired by Le Courbusier.
Hi Mario – I had not heard that, but if it is it has not stood the test of time as an interesting building, which for me suggests it was not a very good design to begin with.
This and other ‘olde worlde’ styles of architecture have flourished in Victoria at the expense of the modern or contemporarary. I can’t think of a single large or public building in the city that has any merit in the modern category, but you know the place better than I do. The Sedgewick Building at UVic maybe ?
Hi Valeria – Victoria is a very conservative and provincial town when it comes to things like architecture and public art. There are very few outstanding buildings in the area from the past 30 years – and even the more interesting ones seem to be derivative and a decade behind what is found in the cutting edge cities.
