Welcome to the Canadian Architecture blog!

Welcome to the first Canadian Architecture blog brought to you by the Malcolmites! We hope this blog will encourage those interested in Canadian architecture to talk (or more specifically, type) about architecture in Canada.

New BOTW Format

Hi everyone,

We thought we'd try out a new format, so for now, the Building of the Week will be placed at the top of the page.  Sometimes we feel that our beautiful buildings of the week get neglected being placed so far at the bottom of the page - even we forget about them sometimes!

Hope you like it!

A new article!

A new article, written by Jess, was published today, April 12, in Raise the Hammer.  This article looks at the famed Auchmar House (1855) situated on the top of the Niagara Escarpment. There is no known architect for the house and so it is given a much-needed stylistic analysis in this accessible little article.

Read it online here:

If you are interested in visiting the house, it will be part of Doors Open Hamilton May 7 & 8, from 10am to 4pm!  Don't miss it!

Where does the time go?

Hello everyone,

Is it possible that it is almost mid-April?  Time flies and this PhD thing is pretty time-consuming.

Sorry for our lack of posts, but know that we are hard at work and we will have some great fodder for the blog soon! We have an exciting trip to Quebec planned for next month and that is just the beginning...

Jess and Candace
