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.

First Day in Quebec for SSAC

Today we woke up bright and early and flew from Toronto to Quebec City.  In true Malcolmite fashion, we hit the ground running and began our day of visits pretty much right after picking up our ugly green car.  Before heading up to Chicoutimi for the conference, we spent some time doing a whirlwind tour of Vieux Quebec.

Notre-Dame-des-Victoires, Quebec City

We were fortunate enough to have a beautiful sunny day to explore the UNESCO World Heritage site so we could check out the 17th century houses, some churches and the Chateau Frontenac (AND to allow us to enjoy some patio-poutine and la tire).

Following this, we drove to Chicoutimi for the beginning of the conference.  We will be posting more of our photos from Quebec City soon, but I have to give my paper in the morning and should probably get some sleep!
