Does it embody elements peculiar to Canada as a whole, or to the region? Does it represent a revival or imitation of an English or Continental style? When did this style flourish, and why? When and why did it decline? A Guide to Canadian Architectural Styles is the first book to provide answers to these and myriad other questions. Both a field guide for the traveller and a reference book for lovers of architecture, this book explores as never before the variations in structures peculiar to specific towns, cities and provinces.This volume follows the development of the styles that have shaped Canadas built environment from the first structures, through the early settlement period, the nineteenth century, and right up to modern times.

And it remarks upon special forms such as religious architecture, civic, domestic, commercial and industrial design.Carefully researched, and heavily illustrated, A Guide To Canadian Architectural Styles is the first comprehensive guide to a very important part of the Canadian identity.
