Architecture plays a powerful role in nation building. Buildings andmonuments not only constitute the built fabric of society, they reflectthe intersection of culture, politics, economics, and aesthetics indistinct social settings and distinct times. From first contact to thepostmodern city, this anthology traces the interaction between cultureand politics as reflected in Canadian architecture and theinfrastructure of ordinary life. Whether focusing on the constructionof Parliament or exploring the ideas of Marshall McLuhan and ArthurErickson, these highly original essays move beyond considerations ofauthorship and style to address cultural politics and insights fromrace and gender studies and from postcolonial and spatial theory.
