The New Spirit: Modern Architecture in Vancouver, 1938-1963
Centre canadien d'architecture/Canadian Centre for Architecture, 1997 - Architecture - 208 pages
The Modernist architecture of the two post-war decades established Vancouver's reputation as a centre for progressive design and culture, a city where architects pursued their desire "to make of architecture a great humanistic experience." With an introduction by Adele Freedman discussing Modernism in Canadian architecture as a whole, Rhodri Windsor Liscombe's The New Spirit is the first comprehensive study of the acclaimed Modernist architecture of Vancouver.
