This anthology […] amounts to a major achievement of collective scholarship. […] By any standards, this is an encyclopedic tour de force.
Kenneth Frampton, Ware Professor of Architecture, Columbia University

Sponsored by the OAA with institutional support provided by RULA

Not to be missed! This book launch and panel discussion on architecture and the civic realm, with George Kapelos, Marco Polo, and Elsa Lam will feature copies of the newly published retrospective available for sale.

Co-edited by Elsa Lam, editor of Canadian Architect magazine, and Graham Livesey, professor at the University of Calgary, this comprehensive review of Canadian architecture between 1967 – 2017 includes fifteen original essays and five hundred photographs and drawings. The anthology covers the defining of national institutions and movements, how Canadian architects interpreted major external trends, regional and Indigenous architectural tendencies, and the influence of architects in Canada’s three largest cities—Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver.
