Product Overview

Canada''s leading architecture and design critic, Adele Freedman has been writing for The Globe and Mail for almost a decade. This collection of her very best articles begins with a revised and expanded version of Freedman''s profile of Peter Dickinson, the modernist architect whose work (including the Benvenuto Place Apartments in Toronto and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce building in Montreal) had a profound influence on the Canadian architecture scene before his premature death in 1961. This essay, which won a National Newspaper Award for featured writing, is followed by a section entitled ''People'': brief portraits of notable personalities in the field of architecture and design both in Canada and internationally. The third section, ''Sites and Issues'', offers articles on specific projects and places ranging from the National Gallery in Ottawa and the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC, to the Eaton Centre and co-op housing.
