Governor-General award winning architect Jeremy Sturgess recently celebrated thirty years in practice in Calgary, where he has been based his whole career. During that time, Sturgess has made a major contribution to transforming the architectural face of the city, from individual houses to large-scale public projects such as the Calgary Water Centre, the Grand Theatre, and Calgary's most recent downtown LRT stations. Full Spectrum provides a comprehensive and multifaceted examination of Sturgess's architecture and urban design, and assesses his contribution to Canadian architecture generally and Calgary architecture in particular. Editor Geoffrey Simmins has gathered perspectives from a number of individuals with whom Sturgess has enjoyed long-term professional relationships―an artist, an urban designer, an architect colleague, an architectural critic, and a journalist. Along with reflections on Sturgesss personality, philosophy, and creative growth, these contributors provide in-depth discussions of a number of Sturgess's most celebrated projects. Simmins himself has drawn on Sturgess's papers and several personal interviews to craft an insightful introduction to the volume. Strikingly illustrated with architectural line drawings and with photos by award-winning photographer Robert Lemermeyer, and featuring an innovative design that facilitates panoramic, multi-paged visual perspectives, Full Spectrum lives up to its title, both in reflecting Sturgesss well-known affinity for vivid colours and in expressing the full range of his remarkable creative odyssey.
