Oak Bay Marina (1962)

1327 Marine Drive, Oak Bay

Architects: Wagg & Hambleton

Casual shaping and massing, whimsical forms, yet a certain airy weightlessness, these were the hallmarks of what came to be known in Britain after W.W.II as "Festival of Britain architecture" - after the exhibition building on Thames South Bank site in London which in 1951 hosted both the Festival and its modern festive architecture. All these elements can be read from this complex which features a polygon pavilion which clings to the water's edge at the Oak Bay Marina.
