The legacies of theaters, hotels, fire stations, flour mills, and more -- torn down, burned down, and otherwise lost -- are uncovered in this bittersweet collection. Using archival photographs, blueprints, and written reports, Raymond Biesinger has rendered a selection of Canada's most iconic lost buildings in his signature minimalist style. Accompanying Biesinger's illustrations are Alex Bozikovic's descriptions which capture each building's historical, cultural, and architectural significance. Bozikovic draws on local histories, archived building permits and his own extensive knowledge of the Canadian urban architectural landscape and its history -- from the letters passed through Kelowna's unlikely art deco post office to the destruction of a home in Halifax's Africville -- to offer fascinating, sometimes forgotten stories about each building and its significance. An impossible architectural walking tour, 305 Lost Buildings of Canada spans the country, its cities and countryside, and its history. Cities change, buildings come and go, but in this fact-filed compendium, you'll find the lost wonders of Canada's architecture.… (més)

I love architecture and how could I resist after seeing my beloved lost Bulova tower on the front cover? The star is Raymond Biesinger's illustrations, with further descriptions of the building's materials and style and mention of the historical significance of the building. (This book started with his Lost Buildings of Canada series.) It took me way longer to finish than it should because I kept going to the internet to find pictures of these buildings. This is a treasure. ( )

The authors of this volume selected larger and older Canadian cities to show how important, and in many cases, well known buildings in those cities have disappeared. Some were lost in fires and storms but the majority were removed to accommodate new buildings. In some cases, the replacement never materialized and now the space is a vacant lot.

If you live in a city selected for inclusion in the book, you may be surprised by the history of the building or the battle to remove or save it. Each building is described in a short paragraph or two plus a black drawing of the outline of the building. The name of the architect if known is given as is the street address so one could visit the site or at least have a look at it on Google Maps. ( )

It's a compact and concise book about unique buildings that no longer exist. Many were destroyed by fire. ( )
