Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery

A few weeks ago I have visited the Belkin Gallery at UBC - something I have meant to do for ages.

It was designed by Peter Cardew and is definitely the very next reason after Museum of Anthropology for an architecture-phile to get out to UBC. Located at 1825 Main Mall, it was finished in 1995.

Awash in gorgeous detailing - right down to the "oreo cookie icecream" glaze on the brick - the design merited Canadian Architect Excellence Award, Progressive Architecture Award, Governor General and Leutenant Governor Medals. Quite an achievement!

Here are some of the pictures I took:
