“…taking the buildings beyond their status as independent examples of good design, the guidebook is subdivided into regions and categories… facilitating a greater understanding and comprehension of the city and its constituent parts. The approach incorporates layers of meaning into the exercise, resulting in an experience much greater than the sum of its parts. …An added bonus is that all listed projects are readily accessible from the city’s excellent public transit system.”

“Through the eyes of a good guide a cityscape can come alive. Elements of our urban environment that we might not notice in our daily routine suddenly have context, history, personality. Such is the effect of Nancy Dunton and Helen Malkin’s A Guide to Contemporary Architecture in Montreal. The perfect size and format to take along on a city safari, this book’s crisp colour photography and authoritative commentary make Montreal a living textbook of modern architecture.”
