dc.description.abstract Guidelines provides a framework for articulating the significance of project authorship and “design intent” in the process of developing strategies for preserving the Modernist architectural heritage in Victoria, British Columbia (1935-1975). It outlines an aesthetic historical context, presents a summary of the unique design vocabulary of regional Modernism, and provides a series of case studies that illustrate how the intentions of designers and builders can be respected and preserved within differing building types. en_US
