Ainsi s'est construit le CanadaBook - 2002 | French
From the 17th century maison Canadienne, to Ukranian prairie homes, to the buildings of Victoria's Chinatown, Canada's buildings tell the story of the country and its people. Ainsi s' est construit le Canada shows how Canadians combined their longing for the familiar structures of the places they left behind, with the practical needs of a new, and often very difficult, land. Bonnie Shemie invites readers to discover the architecture that surrounds us, and the influences that helped to create it. A timeline and glossary help put architectural development into context.
