"The post-Expo era of Canadian architecture has produced works of international importance which have been recognized in European, Japanese and American periodicals. With almost 200 illustrations and a text written for the enquiring general reader, the authors have selected and presented what they judge to be the most significant projects from this rich a n d c o n t i nuing period....Through an examination of the National Gallery competition of 1976-77, the authors identify the mainstream concerns of Canadian architecture. Then, concentrating on major cities from coast to coast, they look at pro je ct s e mb od yi ng a lternative movements that are suggestive of possible future directions, projects such as: Corridart in Montreal; Robson Square in Vancouver; the Pavilion '70 ski chalet in St. Sauveur, Quebec; Toronto's Eaton Centre; Winnipe g's St . Bo nif ace Ca the dra l; the Plus 15 system in Calgary; Edmonton's Citadel Theatre; and Halifax's waterfront restoration."
