Against the brilliant blue sky, the buildings of Saskatchewan emerge from the landscape as symbols of a proud and resilient people, who have consistently drawn on the best of the world, while forging their own way.

From the Art Deco period to Post-Modernism to today's concerns about sustainability, Architecture of Saskatchewanshows the clash between functionality and beauty, and exposes how the light, colour, and seasons of the prairie are reflected within the construction of its buildings.

This book beautifully illustrates the evolution of the province's architectural profession and its rich built heritage, while revealing something essential about the geography of the place and its tough and spirited people.
