  • 1 Gothic Revival – Collegiate Gothic

    Also called Neo-Gothic, this style found application in educational architecture (schools, colleges and universities), as well as religious architecture. Using such materials as machine-cut stone and cast stone applied to concrete and steel structures, or diamond-pattern glass windows (mimicking the effect of leaded glass windows), it was a wholly modern and polished application of late Gothic and Elizabethan motifs to 20th-century building systems. Collegiate Gothic architecture was widely used by Christian faiths in Ontario in the first half of the 20th century. A number of well-preserved examples can be found across the province.
