Readings

While there are some excellent studies of different facets of Alberta's architecture, there is no one comprehensive history that sets out building types and styles as well as eras.

Because of the leadership of Alberta Culture and Community Spirit in the designation and protection of historic buildings enshrined in legislation, the Ministry in its various incarnations (Alberta Culture, Alberta Culture and Multiculturalism, and, finally, Alberta Community Development) has played an important role in promoting and publishing research on the architectural heritage. Important publications include:

Calgary Builds Bryan P. Melnyk, Calgary Builds: The Emergence of an Urban Landscape (Regina: Alberta Culture and the Canadian Plains Research Center, University of Regina, 1985)
Modern Architecture In Alberta
