Building New Brunswick : an architectural history by John Leroux( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New Brunswick's architecture has traditionally exhibited excellence in craftsmanship, faithfulness to materials and harmony with the environment. Building New Brunswick examines the built heritage of the province, from pre-history until today - from the humblest dwelling to the grandest public edifice." "In this volume, Leroux also documents more adventurous takes on modern space and aesthetics, found particularly in churches constructed from the late 1940s to early 1970s and in the expressive spaces of the Modern Movement. He observes that structures such as the initial Universite de Moncton buildings, the Hugh John Flemming Bridge in Hartland, and the Centennial Building in Fredericton will be increasingly valued as central to New Brunswick's heritage. By the late twentieth century, the province began to witness surprising interpretations of Postmodernist, Neotraditionalist, Contemporary and Green architecture, marking a renewed enthusiasm for celebrating form."--Jacket
Northern exposure : works of Carol A. Wilson Architect by Carol A Wilson( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This intimate portrait of eight houses by the Maine architect Carol A. Wilson illustrates how 'local' is an idea as close to architecture as it is to food. Focusing on climate, seasons, views, local materials, the ecological history of building sites, and collaborations with local artisans, Wilson crafts exquisitely designed and built houses that celebrate the beauty of New England and the power of architecture to combine modern forms with a traditional built landscape. Following introductory texts by Enrico Pinna and Juhani Pallasmaa, and a conversation between Wilson and John Leroux, each project opens with a foldout of plans--transitioning from hand-drawn to computer-aided--and information about the house, before culminating in brilliant exterior, interior, and detail photographs. The book closes with an interview in twenty questions that elaborates on Wilson's working principles and the history of her studio for the past thirty years

The lost city : Ian MacEachern's photographs of Saint John by John Leroux( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the 1950s through the 1970s, cities throughout North America engaged in disruptive periods of massive "urban renewal" of older, poorer areas. Neighbourhoods were razed to make way for freeways, housing projects, public amenities, sports arenas, and subdivisions. Planned communities replaced older urban neighbourhoods that had evolved over generations. Ian MacEachern worked for CHSJ-TV in Saint John from 1962 to 1966, and he witnessed the profound transformation of Canada's oldest city as it was buffeted by the forces of reconstruction and modernization. He also recorded the life of the city, its neighbourhoods, its residents, and social life in more than a thousand photographs. Like the documentary photographic works of Walker Evans, Dorothy Lange, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, MacEachern's photographs show an extraordinary power in their honest depictions of fleeting moments and a raw humanity. For A Lost Saint John: The Photographs of Ian MacEachern, architectural and social historian John Leroux hasselected seventy-five black-and-white photographs drawn from MacEachern's exceptional archive and written an accompanying essay that examines the recent history of Saint John and the effect of urban renewal on civic architecture, historic neighbourhoods, and community structure. A Lost Saint John will accompany a touring exhibition, curated by John Leroux and organized by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, that will open in Saint John in the fall of 2018."--
