Canadian Modern Architecture

Elsa Lam, Graham Livesey, Kenneth Frampton


Canada’s most distinguished architectural critics and scholars offer fresh insights into the country’s unique modern and contemporary architecture. Beginning with the nation’s centennial and Expo 67 in Montreal, this fifty-year retrospective 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. Co-published with Canadian Architect, this comprehensive reference book is extensively illustrated and includes fifteen specially commissioned essays.
