Event description

Description

Gothic Revival architecture —inspired by the great cathedrals of Europe—made a surprising impact on early Victoria, but then largely got swept away in favour of the “next latest thing” --notably the Revivals of Queen Anne and Tudor styles. Meanwhile, the Gothic Revival spawned such curious variants as Collegiate Gothic, Prairie Gothic, Castle Gothic and Steamboat Gothic. While these had little local impact, Carpenter Gothic made a lasting impression on Victoria. New trends such as Arts & Crafts and Art Deco later caught Victorians’ fancy, but Dr. Russell sees a continuum: Has Victoria inherited a legacy of Carpenter Gothic design elements which influence even today’s architects?

Victoria heritage researcher and writer Nick Russell lectures widely and has recently authored Glorious Victorian Homes: 150 Years of Architectural History in BC’s Capital, and Then & Now: Postcards from the Past.
