Building New Brunswick takes us on a journey through time and place to discover this province's architectural legacy. Beginning with the homes of the Mi'kmaq and Maliseet, we move forward through the past: Acadian and Loyalist settlement, colonial and post-colonial periods, both post-World War eras, and on into the 21st century.
A wealth of photographs, engravings, and architectural renderings complement the text. Examining domestic buildings, public architecture, commercial structures, bridges, and industrial sites, this beautifully designed book documents the history of the province's architecture and the many influences contributing to its visual landscape.
Building New Brunswick was published to coincide with a major exhibition on New Brunswick architecture, also curated by John Leroux, which opened at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton in June 2008.
"A building is much more than a shelter and much more than a pile of material assembled in a certain order. It is a silent and profound extension of our humanity and its sense of continuity." — Herménégilde Chiaison
