Abstract
"Cabin Fever traces the tradition of the cabin in Canada and the United States--from the settlement of the frontier to the contemporary depictions feverishly circulated across the Internet--showing how this humble architectural form has been appropriated for its symbolic value and helped shape a larger cultural identity. The exhibition title is borrowed from the idiomatic expression for an anxious state of mind resulting from a prolonged stay in a remote or confined place. But it also plays upon the more consumer-driven definition of "fever:" a contagious, usually transient, fascination with an object of desire. Cabin Fever will offer a historical and cultural survey of the cabin in North America, an acknowledgement of the pervasive influence of this typology. Not only has the cabin survived in various forms and iterations, but it also has resonated deeply in our cultural psyche."-- Provided by publisher.

Abstract
"Magical. Breath-taking. Unforgettable. Perched high above the Sunwapta Canyon in Canada's Rocky Mountains, Glacier Skywalk is all of these things--and more. Its choreographed pathways and cantilevered viewing platform allow visitors to see and experience the world in a whole new way. Glacier Skywalk tells the inside story of this award-winning collaboration between Parks Canada, Brewster Travel and the combined design-and-build team of Sturgess Architecture, PCL Constructors and RJC Consulting Engineers. Insightful essays by Trevor Boddy and Clea and Jeremy Sturgess reveal how the ideas came together and were realized in built form. Detailed sketches, three-dimensional renderings and stunning photographs by Robert Lemermeyer show how the structures evolved from start to finish. From the larch wood kiosk that welcomes visitors just off the Icefields Parkway, through the rock-lined walls, the glass floors and railings and the jagged steel forms that emulate mountains and glaciers, Glacier Skywalk reflects and highlights its surrounding environment. Whether or not you have stood suspended over the canyon--floating exposed to the elements, moving gently with the wind and visitors' footfalls, Glacier Skywalk captures the brilliance of the design and the magic of the experience. It is a book to treasure for years to come."-- Provided by publisher.
