hugh robertson, panda associates


Gander, Redpath, Loblaws, Faberge: Panda Associates - a group of Toronto architectural, commercial and industrial photographers - documented Canada's postwar building boom. They photographed the designs of their contemporaries through modern eyes. The signage and typography, the architecture and the photographs together reflect the idealism of Mid- Century Canada.

Photographs courtesy the Panda Archive, Canadian Architectural Archive, University of Calgary. Presented concurrently with "Mid-Century Icons: Architectural Photography from The Panda Collection", the Eric Arthur Gallery, University of Toronto.
