Peter Dickinson Architect: A Retrospective 1950-1961. Dominion Modern presented the very first retrospective of Canadian modern master, architect Peter Dickinson.

Peter Dickinson was born in England in 1925. After leaving the Grenadier Guards at the end of World War II, he returned to the Architectural Association school in London, winning several scholarships, graduating with honours in 1948. His design work brought him to the attention of the prominent Toronto firm of Page and Steele. In May of 1950, Peter Dickinson and his bride set sail for the New World. As chief designer at Page & Steele, Dickinson produced an amazing array of exciting, high profile projects. Eight years later he had his own firm with offices in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and London, England. Peter Dickinson’s meteoric career came to earth when he died suddenly in 1961, at the age of 35. This exhibition is a celebration of the man’s life, his work, and his passion.
