This survey covers a broad range of Canadian building, from the dwellings of the native peoples and the first settlers to architectural achievements of the present day. The author brings to light some distinctive characteristics of Canadian architects and architecture: a respect for natural forms and local materials; the tendency to absorb ideas from abroad and then simplify and restrain them; the development of marked regional differences; and a flair for producing innovations in response to social issues.
