That Saskatoon set is amazing. The best unique set I've seen on here in ages.

The Saskatoon photos were beautiful and Montreal iconic.
St. John's nice too, even with ample parking .

Montreal, man.

Not too many cities can layer modernity over history without destroying it.

Or have avant-garde visions of an era (Expo '67) survive into the present day.

Montreal does this. It does this fantastically, for North America. The only place I can think of that stands up to that is New York City.

Toronto's too new, too modern. It has hints of its history, but is not steeped in them.

Cities in the Canadian West are pretty much modern ethos, for better or worse.

Habitat 67 could use a good pressure washing.

Really love the pics of Saskatoon and Victoria. Good architecture. Good mix of old and modern.

Yeah upon close inspection, you can really see the effects of 54 years of Montreal weather on the concrete slabs.

I'm wondering though if that's not part of it's charm.

Habitat is so ugly and beautiful at the same time, utilitarian and welcoming. I love it. It would look great nestled in the coastal mountains of the west coast. Looking forward to Toronoto's B.I.G glass blocks version.

Late to the party, but man, those shots of Saskatoon were sexé… it looked like a whole other city.

It's an office tower that is part of the Nova Centre complex.
