190 pp, 4to (11" H). Profusely illustrated in b&w with photographs, drawings, plans. "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 and continuing 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 projects embodying alternative 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; Winnipeg's St. Boniface Cathedral; the Plus 15 system in Calgary; Edmonton's Citadel Theatre; and Halifax's waterfront restoration." Very tiny bump at bottom corner of both boards, minor browning to edges of textblock. Dust jacket has one tiny closed tear with soft wrinkle, very light browning on spine and top edge.
