    Opening of the “Building a Community: Estonian Architects in Post-War Toronto” Exhibit and Symposium

    September 22, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

    Tartu College | 310 Bloor St West
    Toronto, Ontario Canada

    A symposium will be held at Tartu College dedicated to the opening of the exhibit Building a Community: Estonian Architects in Post-War Toronto. Architectural historians and publicists from both Canada and Estonia will be speaking. VEMU has been working in collaboration with the Museum of Estonian Architecture in Tallinn since 2015 to prepare an exhibit about architects in Toronto with Estonian backgrounds. The exhibit will celebrate both Canada’s 150th and Estonia’s 100th birthdays. The exhibit will be on display in Tallinn at the Museum of Estonian Architecture in 2018. The Compatriots Program and MISA assisted in the financial support of this collaborative project.

    In addition to the curator of the exhibit, Jarmo Kauge, speakers include the academic, architectural historian, and Rector of the Estonian Academy of Arts, Mart Kalm, the architect Graeme Stewart, who worked on the restoration of Uno Prii’s buildings, the journalist with architectural interests, Alfred Holden, and the architect Thomas Tampõld.

    The symposium will be in English. No admission fee.
    A small donation would be appreciated.
