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.

We're back!

Hello everyone and happy 2011!

We'd like to sincerely apologize for the incredibly long hiatus.  Both Candace and I completed our comprehensive exams shortly before the holidays which took many months of preparation, hence no blogging for many months.  Fortunately, we are now on the other side and back in action - back to our own research, travels and blogging!

Thanks for your patience and we look forward to getting back to posting regularly.

SSAC 2011 is coming!!!

(above: The Arvida Bridge)
In May, the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada will be holding its 38th Annual Conference in Arvida, Quebec.

Arvida, a town located in northern Quebec, was founded in 1927 as a company town by the Alcoa (Alcan) aluminum company as a model town for working families. Its name is derived from its founder, ARthur VIning DAvis, the president of Alcoa from 1910-28.

All of the Malcomites will be in Arvida for the conference and all are presenting papers on differing aspects of Canadian architecture. Candace and Malcolm will be chairing a session on Urban and Village Churches with 9 presenters.

The Conference is open to all Society members. To become a member or to find out more about the conference, visit the SSAC website at:
