Welcome to the Trend House Chronicles, documenting a piece of Mid-Century Modern architecture in Calgary. In the early 1950s a group from the British Columbia lumber industry sponsored the building of a series of innovative Modern Style homes across Canada, in a similar 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, as well as documenting the programme as a whole.
