Alberta Legislature Annex Building
This office building was originally built to house Alberta Government Telephones (AGT) as a low rise building. In phase two it’s size was doubled to meet the expansion needs of the government department.
The building sits at an important location of the Legislature grounds a short distance from the Alberta Legislative Assembly.
The building challenged conventional building technologies by being the first to use curtainwall in eastern Canada. For this reason the building has a degree of historic importance attached to it. Although purists believe that the tyndal and sandstone material pallette of the Legislature should have
clad the Annex building, the contrast in materials demonstrates growth and innovation on Alberta’s history.
