Calgarys Grand Story is a history of the city as told through the story of the Grand Theatre & the Lougheed Building, two of Calgarys most prominent historic icons. Commissioned by Senator James Lougheed, & his wife, Belle Hardisty Lougheed, the Lougheed building opened to the public in February of 1912 to much fanfare & great anticipation. This was a definitive moment for Calgarians & would mark the beginning of a golden era in the citys history. With the addition of a state-of-the-art theatre on the ground floor beneath offices that would soon become Calgarys premier corporate address, this building would anchor the development of the downtown core well into the 1950s. By mixing business & cultural history, the author sketches a fascinating urban biography of Calgary from 1912 up to Albertas 100th birthday in 2005.

Geostories' is a manifesto on the environmental imagination presented in architectural projects that engage the planetary scale with a commitment to drawing as medium. In 12 geographic fictions, the book invites critical and speculative engagements of humanity?s relations to Earth and technology. How do we make sense of the Earth at a moment in which it is presented in crisis? To live in an epoch that is shaped by extensive environmental transformations is to be confronted with risks and uncertainties at a planetary scale. Paradoxically, we remain little mobilized, in part because of our failures to comprehend the reach of a story that is both difficult to tell and hear. 'Geostories' responds to the environmental crisis not only as a crisis of the physical environment but also as a crisis of the cultural environment. This book won a Graham Foundation Grant.
