About this title


Designing successfully for people in the world's coldest climates demands a broad understanding of site conditions and their unique social context. Until now such knowledge often lay unarticulated in the minds of a few experienced practitioners or in the disappearing traditions of aboriginal peoples.


"In Bare Poles, climate, culture, architecture and building science are skillfully woven into a fascinating and coherent story that will appeal to the general public as well as to architects and others involved with building in Northern Canada." Douglas Wren, retired professor of building science, Laval University "One can wonder how different things would be today if this information had been available in 1960." Lea Matthews,MAIBC "By combining technical observations and personal experience, Strub has created ... a document that will assist both the professional designer and the inquisitive reader. It will lead, we hope, to a greater understanding of the problems of building in a polar environment and will accelerate our search for building designs suited to the high latitudes." Gino Pin, FRAIC
