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.

SSAC journals are now online

Exciting news, everyone: the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada (SSAC) has recently digitized its archive of journals! These were previously tricky to find in libraries and we are thrilled that they are now easily accessible. You can find them here.

If you are looking for some quality writing on Canadian architecture, be sure to take a look. If you want some specific suggestions, try "Why Such an Odd Plan? Milton Earl Beebe's St Thomas Anglican Church, St Catharines, Ontario" by Candace or "Storming the Castle: The Architecture of Trafalgar Castle" by Jess ... not that we're biased or anything.

Some of these articles will also be added to our Articles page for easy access. Enjoy!

Lest we forget

In honour of Remembrance Day on Friday, November 11, we are bending the rules slightly with our selection of the Building of the Week. We realize that it's not a building, but we have decided to feature the National War Memorial in Ottawa. Built between 1926-1939 to commemorate the First World War, it was altered in 1982 in order to include the Second World War and the Korean War.

This Remembrance Day, be sure to pay tribute to all of the men and women who have made sacrifices for our country.
