Art Deco Across Canada

February 9th, 1:00-3:00 pm

You may be surprised to learn that the Art Deco style of architecture, exemplified by New York Cityʼs Chrysler Building or Miami Beachʼs pastel-coloured hotels, was also prevalent in Canada between the mid-1920s and the early 1950s. In the major centres of Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, but also in smaller cities and towns from St. Johnʼs to Victoria, one can still find buildings that display the jazzy verticality, sleek streamlining or modernized classicism of this globally influential style of design.
