Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sitting so close to the United States, and with influences from France, Great Britain, Asia, and Europe, building styles in Canada are familiar but different, eclectic, and unique. Bonnie Shemie, who studied the houses of North Americas native peoples, has created a beautiful and informative volume that defines this countrys history and geography through its buildings.

Among the styles that dot the landscape are Quebecs maison Canadienne based on Frances peasant cottages, brightly painted homes of the Atlantic seaports, the sod houses, prefabricated buildings and false fronts that dominated the prairies, popular Ontario farm house design, Montreals famed duplexes with exterior staircases, and uniquely Canadian chateau-style hotels. Building Canada also looks at the importance of modern building materials, restoration efforts, and city planning. Complete with timeline and glossary.

Synopsis:

A gloriously illustrated look at the buildings that dot the Canadian countryside.
