One of Edmonton’s most iconic buildings, the Alberta Legislature has overlooked the river valley for over 100 years.
It was designed by Allan Merrick Jeffers & Richard Palin Blakey and was constructed between 1907 and 1913. Parts of the building are made of granite from Vancouver Island and sandstone from Calgary’s Glenbow Quarry.
The current grounds with pools, fountains and stepping stones, were renovated to their present form between 1979 and 1982 as the result of a competition that was won by the architectural firm Macintosh Workun Chernenko.
