Keshavjee at the University of Winnipeg on Charles and Ray Eames, and a year later, we formalized plans for an exhibition and publication on Winnipeg's Modernist architecture. David Carr of the University of Manitoba Press expertly managed the publication, Pat Sanders completed the exquisite text editing, and Cheryl Miki organized the publication's marketing and distribution. The high quality of the press tests and printing set-up is a tribute to the expertise of Brad Schmidt and Donovan Bergman of Friesens.

The typographic designer and professor David Cabianca gave me practical advice about modern fonts and their usage, and Daniel Melendez assisted with the titles and the exhibition text. I am grateful to Jocelyn and David Laurence, children of Jean Margaret Laurence, for their enthusiastic permission to 'unravel' "North Main Car—Winnipeg" , from the estate of Margaret Laurence, for presentation in the exhibition. Robert Kroetsch and Turnstone Press generously gave permission to publish an excerpt from his Seed Catalogue.

Gloria Kalen deserves special acknowledgement for allowing Dr. Keshavjee and me to complete a detailed image-by-image search through Henry Kalen's vast archive of exceptional negatives and contact prints over many visits. Professor Grant Marshall and Professor Peter Forster accompanied me on the key initial architectural tours of Winnipeg.

Professor Marshall also assisted me in colour selection for the exhibition and gave me many insights into the interior design history of the period.

For the exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, directors Patricia Bovey and Pierre Arpin supported the project from its inception through completion. Our high ambitions were enthusiastically supported by Brigitte Desrochers, the energetic and visionary Architecture Officer for the Canada Council, and I am exceedingly grateful for the Council's generous financial support. Nancy LeBlond, daughter of John A. Russell, and her husband, Ted LeBlond, Principal at Stantec Architecture, generously shared their personal archival information and recollections.

My family has patiently persevered through this project's long gestation period with good humour. I would like to convey—to the extent possible in text—my sincere appreciation to Dr.

Serena Keshavjee, who contributed her vast energy, her great powers of concentration, and her extraordinary research skills to the project. She was able to manage the quite unexpected deluge of information, coordinate the contributions of authors, write an intense article on Centennial Hall, and gather up the loose ends of the project in her extensive, over-arching introduction.

Her gifts of research, documentation, and intelligent criticism have given the publication a strong sense of intellectual coherence. I have tried to invoke a sense of spatial and material depth in my design, applying principles of proportion, colour, spatial arrangement, and material selection normally associated with a work of architecture to this publication: the book has been designed like a building.

The quality of the bank architecture on Main Street alone demonstrates Winnipeg's prosperity during this period, fig. Indeed, Winnipeg has been rightly seen as a kind of crucible of Canadian Modernist architecture. Under the leadership of John A. Russell to , the School of Architecture of the University of Manitoba graduated some of the most important representatives of Canadian Modernism, such as John C.

Parkin, Harry Seidler, and Douglas C. Some graduates went on to important careers elsewhere, but others remained in Winnipeg, producing one fig. Other than Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, Winnipeg maintains more high-quality Modern buildings than any other Canadian city. Despite the relative lack of redevelopment pressure in Winnipeg, one cannot be complacent about these buildings.

Most people are not aware that we are in the midst of a crisis of historical preservation. While heritage societies still put nearly all their efforts into protecting late nineteenth- and early twentiethcentury buildings, in fact, it is Modernist and proto-Modernist structures that are the most endangered. Historian Alan Artibise has noted that because of this economic situation, "The period from to [was] the most difficult in Winnipeg's history. According to historian Edward Whitcomb, the s and s represented Winnipeg's cultural revival after a long stagnant period, and this is evident in the quality and quantity of the structures built during this time.

Winnipeg also needed a more elaborate infrastructure to support this mostly suburban expansion around the city. It was during these years that the transportation system, the Winnipeg floodway, and the hydroelectrical dams such as those in Pinawa were developed. As Martin Tessler's photographic essay on "Living Modernism" documents, many of these Modernist structures are still in good use, although not all are in good repair.

Stewart Photograph: Henry Kalen D5. Mel Michener, for example, has described a point in his career when the architectural firm Libling, Michener, and Associates had contracts for schools in Manitoba. Lockhart, of the newly formed University of Winnipeg, stated, "with every addition to the physical plant students came to crowd the available space.

One of the reasons for the high quality of Manitoban Modernist architecture is the School of Architecture at the University of Manitoba. When architecture was first taught at the university in , it was only the third such school to do so in Canada, and the only school in the Western provinces until , when the University of British Columbia opened its doors. Russell, an American trained at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who became head of the School of Architecture in , was central to the advent of Modernist architecture in Manitoba through his teaching, engagement with the arts community, and his publishing record.

In an article in Queens Quarterly in , he described the formal characteristics of Modernist architecture: the best architecture today is characterized by clarity and order in its design, by sound structural expression, by simplicity of inner spaces the fundamental architectural commodity , by dignity of proportion and by a unity of the whole.

It no longer has to struggle to free itself from the curious academicism of the early years of our century when much of the art on this continent was suffering from an eclectic "hangover" induced by too many stylistic revivals in the nineteenth century. Modernist architecture, he suggested, was a reaction against Historicism or revival architecture, which appropriated historical styles, such as the Greek and Roman styles that dominate Winnipeg's Exchange district and its environs; for example, the Bank of Montreal.

Setting the standard for safety throughout the U.S. and Canada

A building created in a past style was not, according to Russell, "an expression of the period in which it is built and of the civilization surrounding it.

Early Modernist architects were also imbued with a social consciousness that proposed to make the world a better place by improving living conditions. They tended to view industry and technology as progressive forces. Some of the most famous practitioners of Modernism came out of the German Bauhaus school.

With Hitler's rise to power, by the early s, these artists and architects emigrated to America and began teaching in universities, widely disseminating both the style and philosophy of Modernism throughout North America. Russell's description of Modernist architecture as being clear and orderly in its design, simple in its interior spaces, and unified in its look, sums up the main formal characteristics of this Bauhaus or International Style.

Most Modernist buildings share a common vocabulary of abstracted forms, transparency, and spatial flow. These common tropes developed from an interest in using functional design combined with technology that separated the skeleton of fig. The flat roofs, non-load-bearing walls skinned with glass or masonry, the lack of decoration, and the simple symmetrical proportions of the BauhausianInternational Style are perfectly embodied in Winnipeg's early government buildings such as the Norquay Building fig.

But, as Kelly Grossman points out in his essay in this anthology, "Manitoba Modernists sought out the possibilities inherent in Winnipeg's morphology and topography. John Brebeuf fig. Gaboury's writings express an emphasis on identity, both personal and regional, in his buildings: "My definition of architecture as being 'space structured to serve human needs' implies a polarity between space and humans.

Indeed, although space is the essential matter of architecture, human beings are its object and raison d'etre. Architecture is of necessity anthropocentric.

The School of Architecture was not the only cultural institution to hire a fig. Gaboury Photograph: Henry Kalen N1. William McCloy was recruited from the University of Iowa in to head the School of Art, after it joined the University of Manitoba as the country's second Fine Arts department within a university.

In addition to his emphasis on Modernism in architecture, J. Russell was also very committed to building up Winnipeg's local avant-garde community. For example, he refused a prestigious job as director of the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Toronto in order to remain in Winnipeg. Lewis Morse travelled to London in and joined forces with Arup and Associates. According to a number of architects, Manitoba's School of Architecture was "the only school that mattered during this period.

The enthusiasm generated about new buildings in the press during the midcentury is surprising for a contemporary reader. However, as the authors in this anthology demonstrate, the powerful symbolic value of architecture was well understood during this period by governments and the public alike. This anthology contains eight articles on Winnipeg Modernist architecture, written by a diverse group of scholars, architects, and art and architectural historians.

Included are biographies of some of the most important architects and designers and a bibliography complied by research students at the University of Winnipeg, Aldona Dziedziejko and Jenny Western.

Kalen generously gave me full access to his archive, which documents with an image and minimal information almost every Modern structure built in this city from the late s until the s. Some of the basic research for this book and a majority of the images come from Kalen's archive. Sadly, Henry died before this project was complete and I have dedicated this book to him.

By filling in the gap regarding the socio-economic history of post-World War II architecture in Winnipeg, Burley's critique of Modernism, based on early sources, especially from the Winnipeg Tribune, contributes significantly to our understanding of this culturally vital period in Canada's recent history.

Burley sees Modernist architecture as having failed the general public, but as Martin Tessler's photographic essay, selected by Herbert Enns, indicates, Winnipeggers have accommodated themselves to Modernist buildings, and, indeed, some of these buildings are well-loved and well-used structures. Arriving during the height of the summer in , Tessler frequented Winnipeg's pools, ice cream parlours, and shopping centres to capture "Living Modernism," the title of his essay.

Because Henry Kalen's photographs, which appear throughout this book, presented Modern buildings as-typical for the timestark, unpeopled ideals of architectural perfection, Tessler was commissioned to produce colour images of the way Modernist structures were adapted for actual use. His lively images of the St. Vital pool and the Bridge Drive-in, filled with children, demonstrate the importance of these buildings to Winnipeg summer culture.

About this book

My essay continues the contextual approach taken by Burley. I examine the University of Winnipeg's decision to remain a downtown-based university, rather than move to the suburbs to join the other colleges at the University of Manitoba. Its successful integration into the downtown environment was realized by the construction of Centennial Hall , a stylish megastructure built over the existing university buildings. These two inner-city megastructures expose their internal workings and highlight them with primary colours.

His lively images of the St. Vital pool and the Bridge Drive-in, filled with children, demonstrate the importance of these buildings to Winnipeg summer culture. My essay continues the contextual approach taken by Burley. I examine the University of Winnipeg's decision to remain a downtown-based university, rather than move to the suburbs to join the other colleges at the University of Manitoba.

Its successful integration into the downtown environment was realized by the construction of Centennial Hall , a stylish megastructure built over the existing university buildings. These two inner-city megastructures expose their internal workings and highlight them with primary colours.

Both buildings reflect the liberationist ideals of the late s; the architects made efforts to produce plans and design elements that would facilitate an accessible, non-hierarchical educational experience.

The authors in this anthology do not always agree about Modernism's legacy. Burley is critical of Modernism's centralized, hierarchical, and totalizing approach, which, he believes, paid no heed to the needs of its users.

Architectural historian Kelly Grossman challenges the definition of Modernism as a monolithic architectural practice, perceiving it instead as responsive to its environment. Like Sarah Goldhagen, he proposes that the International Style was not one fixed formula for building. International Style structures in Winnipeg reflect the local architects' response to the s debates regarding regional adjustments to that dominant style.

He concludes that Winnipeg's Modernist architects, despite their proximity to iconic figures such as Mies and Gropius, were not generically copying the International Style, but modifying it to fit regional requirements. Manitoba Modernists, he maintains, sought out the possibilities inherent in Winnipeg's landscape and strove to make their buildings habitable and enjoyable for their clients. Herbert Enns's contribution is also wide-ranging in its scope and ideas. Enns looks at the role of western prairie settlement patterns in shaping the city's infrastructure during the mid-century.

Like Grossman, he sees Winnipeg architecture as being profoundly affected by the region. He has written a series of articles on the art and architectural program of Canadian airports, the "largest public art project ever realized in Canada. The promotional material for these airports boasted state-of-the-art equipment and "modern" design. As Flaman explains, the coordinated program for the airports and the decision to furnish them with salient examples of Canadian abstract art and Modernist furniture reflect the government's attempt to fulfill the directive of the Massey Report to forge a Canadian identity.

With these airports, including the Miesian terminal at Winnipeg, the government was hoping to create an up-to-date, modern Canadian identity. Terri Fuglem has extensively examined the work of Gustavo da Roza II, who won the national competition for his groundbreaking design for the Winnipeg Art Gallery in Above all, the building should have a character, an architectural expression, which immediately conveys the impression that it is an art gallery-one designed especially for its location and, therefore, in harmony with as well as complementary to its neighbors and immediate environment.

Fuglem sees this series of dwellings, with their mannered and exaggerated elements, as rejecting the purity of Modernism; that is, as a move towards Post-Modernism. It is interesting to note that both Grossman and Fuglem point out the symbolic importance to architects of the colour white in Winnipeg, a city that is blanketed in snow for almost four months of every year.

As Grossman points out, by the late s the Winnipeg architecture scene became more diffuse. Faye Hellner outlines the sources of Etienne Gaboury's organic style, in particular his introduction to Corbusier's work as a student in France, his exposure to Catholicism in his childhood, and his response to living on the prairies. Gaboury dismisses the notion of an "international" Modernism: "The ideology of the International style advocates a borderless architecture and rejects all organic or regional expression.

The plea in the Massey Report for the development of a regional Canadian architecture adapted to the land-area, climate, and local materials was clearly heeded in Winnipeg; here we find a modified Modernism.

As with the artistic reliefs and murals commissioned for the Winnipeg International Airport, which highlight nature as a fundamental theme for Manitobans, the role of nature in the urban environment of the city was part of the building philosophy of mid-century Winnipeg architects. Gaboury's structures grow from the ground, da Roza's houses frame intimate views of forested yards, and even a consummate Miesian such as Thordarson skinned his buildings in Manitoba fossilized limestone-a golden-hued stone imprinted with the evidence of ancient local life.

The forces of nature are strongly felt in Winnipeg. From the extremely cold winters, to the plagues of summer insects, to the city's establishment on a lake basin, to the organic development pattern because of the confluence of two major rivers, the Red and the Assiniboine, to the frequent flooding of these rivers-this city fights every season against being taken back to its "natural" state.

As Gaboury argues, "We inevitably become swept up by the major dynamics of nature and we ignore it at our peril. He believed that "Canadian Architecture" had to be created to suit each of the individual regions.

It had to develop like "subsoil" from the local climatic conditions. Like the Canadian cultural mosaic, Manitoba Modernist architecture succeeds because it adapts to and celebrates the local natural and built environments. The Eaton Building was destroyed in Winnipeg historians are now challenging the oft-repeated story that the completion of the Panama Canal was detrimental to Winnipeg's prosperous economic situation.

Bumsted 22 March University of Toronto Press, , Architecture was taught within the Faculty of Arts at the University of Manitoba beginning in In a Faculty of Engineering and Architecture was set up. It offered a post-graduate Master of Architecture degree by The School of Architecture was set up by and a Faculty of Architecture was in place by Williams Goldhagen and Rejean Legault, eds.

Here Goldhagen states that the reliance on formalist tropes to define Modernism is reductionist and unsatisfactory. See her "Something to Talk about," She suggests moving away from simplistic, formalist definition and proposes a socio-political categorization instead. Only when the interlocking cultural, political and social dimensions that together constitute the foundation of modernism in architecture are identified and analyzed can we properly make sense of modernism's initial complexity and its evolution over time.

Gaboury, "Metaphores et metamorphoses en architecture," Cahiers franco-canadiens de I'Ouest 3, 2 Autome : In light of Goldhagen's reconceptualizing of Modernity, it is interesting to note that Gaboury counts as the beginning of his foray into Organicism and regionalism one of the most perfect International Style buildings in Canada, his Manitoba Health Service Building of My thanks to Ernest Mayer for this document.
