From the blog
In the early 1950s a group from the British Columbia wood industry sponsored the building of a series of innovative Modern Style homes across Canada, in a similiar fashion to the Case Study Program in the United States. This web site documents the design and restoration of the Calgary Trend House undertaken since 2001.
From the city's inventory if historic resources:
The Calgary Trend House is one of only 11 innovative and modern houses built across Canada as part of the Trend House Program from 1953 to 1954. The Calgary Trend House is highly significant as a symbol of new expressions in modern living in Calgary and serves as a prototype and showpiece for Prairie Modernism and innovative technologies in Canadian-based materials and design.
