305 lost buildings of Canada / Raymond Biesinger & Alex Bozikovic.

Biesinger, Raymond, (author.). Bozikovic, Alex, (author.).


"The legacies of theaters, hotels, fire stations, flour mills, and more - torn down, burned down, and otherwise lost - are uncovered in this bittersweet collection. Using archival photographs, blueprints, and written reports, Raymond Biesinger has rendered a selection of Canada's most iconic lost buildings in his signature minimalist style. Accompanying Biesinger's illustrations are Alex Bozikovic's descriptions which capture each building's historical, cultural, and architectural significance. Bozikovic draws on local histories, archived building permits and his own extensive knowledge of the Canadian urban architectural landscape and its history - from the letters passed through Kelowna's unlikely art deco post office to the destruction of a home in Halifax's Africville - to offer fascinating, sometimes forgotten stories about each building and its significance. An impossible architectural walking tour, 305 Lost Buildings of Canada spans the country, its cities and countryside, and its history. Cities change, buildings come and go, but in this fact-filed compendium, you'll find the lost wonders of Canada's architecture."-- Provided by publisher.
