In the ten years since the first edition of A Guide to Canadian Architectural Styles

This Guide provides an essential profile of the origins and development of the many architectural styles across Canada, from early settlement to the postmodern period, and discusses special forms such as religious, civic, domestic, commercial, and industrial design. While remaining true to the accessible format of the first edition, the second offers updated and considerably expanded text, as well as many more illustrations.

A Guide to Canadian Architectural Styles, second edition is an invaluable reference tool for heritage activists and planners; university and college courses in Canadian architecture, history, and cultural resource management; and the interested general reader.
