Canada's leading architectural and design critic, Adele Freedman has been writing for the The Globe and Mail for almost a decade. For this collection she has selected her best columns, including a revised and expanded version of her profile of architect Peter Dickinson, the modernist architect whose work (including the Benvenuto Place Apartments in Toronto and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce Building in Montreal) had a profound influence on the Canadian architecture scene before his premature death in 1961. This essay which won a Nation Newspaper Award for feature writing, is followed by a section entitled People: brief portraits of notable personalities in the fields of architecture and design both in Canada and internationallyfrom Ernest Cormier, Douglas Cardinal, and Phyllis Lambert to Frank Gehry, Jane Jacobs, and Ada Louise Huxtable. The third section, Sites and Issues, offers articles on specific projects and places ranging from the National Gallery in Ottawa and the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC, to the Eaton Centre and co-op housing. Illustrated with 35 black-and-white photographs, Sights Lines will interest not only Freedmans numerous fans across the country, but everyone who cares about architecture and design.
