uno prii #1

An Uno Prii apartment building.20 prince arthur

This is perhaps the most iconic of Uno Prii’s work of around the 250 apartment buildings he built in the 60s and 70s in Toronto. A dozen of them have been listed as Heritage Properties. Many of his earlier buildings display a flare for mid-century expressionism. He had fun with the architecture and one of his aims, to make people want to live in apartment buildings, was something almost unheard of in the Toronto of his day. But, with a wave of new immigrants to the city and the first of the baby boomers ready for their first apartment, the timing was perfect for his Jetson’s looking style of buildings to be successful. As is often the case with architecture, it went through a stage of being reviled and desecrated. But in the past decade a new appreciation for his work has blossomed.

Mr Uno Prii died in 2000; his wife, Silvia Prii died on March 15th 2010.

Lord, I have loved Your sky,
Be it said against or for me,
Have loved it clear and high,
Or low and stormy
