About this title

Synopsis:

Against the brilliant blue sky, the buildings of Saskatchewan emerge from the landscape as symbols of a proud and resilient people, who have consistently drawn on the best of the world, while forging their own way. From the Art Deco period to Post-Modernism to today's concerns about sustainability, Architecture of Saskatchewan shows the clash between functionality and beauty, and exposes how the light, colour, and seasons of the prairie are reflected within the construction of its buildings. This book beautifully illustrates the evolution of the province's architectural profession and its rich built heritage, while revealing something essential about the geography of the place and its tough and spirited people.

About the Author:

Bernard Flaman is an architect working in the field of heritage conservation. He co-curated the 2004 exhibition Character and Controversy at the Mendel Art Gallery, which examined Modernist architecture in Saskatchewan. He has written about the Saskatchewan Power Corporation headquarters in Regina and the development of Canadian airports in the 1960s and participated in UNESCO's policy development on Modern heritage in relation to World Heritage designations.
