A History of Canadian ArchitectureBook - 1994
In this monumental two-volume set, the first comprehensive study of Canadian architecture, Kalman has produced a rich panorama, treating the vast range of Canadian building from the dwellings of the native peoples and the first settlers to buildings of the recent past and the present day. He describes the country's architectural history in a lucid and interesting narrative, and places the buildings firmly in a social and cultural context, to bring to light some distinctive characteristics of Canadian architects and architecture. Lavishly illustrated with over 800 black and white drawings and photographs, the books will be an essential reference for anyone interested in architectural history.
