SUBJECT : With the approach of Canada's Centennial in 1967, the Canadian government initiated dozens of architectural projects across the country.

This publication proposes an historical overview of the venture as well as detailed presentation of 21 projects with archival photographs and orginal architectural renderings. In English and French. Foreword by Michaelangelo Sabatino.
