Sample text

Architects in Canada believed that newspapers, journals, and especially books offered accurate representations of architectural fashion abroad. After the 1870s, the centre of public taste for the Gothic Revival, as far as the pattern books were concerned, shifted from Europe to New York. US pattern books appeared to greatly influence the Canadian building trade. The vanguard of this shift was charted by the emigration of Frank Wills from Fredericton, New Brunswick, to New York in 1848. There, he inaugurated the New York Ecclesiological Society, modelled on its namesakes in Britain, and founded a quarterly journal called The New York Ecclesiologist that echoed the philosophy and format of the Ecclesiologist in Britain.

It was quite clear to medievalists that those who controlled the architectural language in things like pattern books 39 • the r ise of comm ercial so ciet y had the ability to frame a national architectural image. Whether by conscious design, or more likely by the operations of a capitalist market, architects intent on nationalizing the Gothic Revival in Canada issued book after book in order to infuse their preferred idiom with freshness. All of this was actually problematized by the fact that architectural grammar had a way of crossing national boundaries.

Case Study: Christ Church Cathedral, Montreal, Quebec (1857) The British-trained architect Frank Wills (1822–1857) employed an ambitious Gothic Revival design to win the commission to rebuild Christ Church (later promoted to cathedral status) in Montreal in 1857 (fig. 6). Fire had destroyed the Anglican church on 10 December the year previous, erasing the earlier Georgian style structure of 1821. The new church galvanized the city, and the commission had the potential to solidify Wills’s career in North America.
