In an age of unprecedented human impact on the planet, certain countries stand out for their privileged positions and the complexity of their relationships with the land. Stories about Canada closely follow the discovery and appropriation of vast and varied natural resources as well as changing ideas of the proper relationship between people and their environment. Presenting case studies from the last five decades of human intervention in the Canadian landscape, Alm°st the perfect place explores Canadian's often conflicted and conflicting views of what we call the "natural' environment. Among the materials included are selections from CCA, Library and Archives Canada, McCord Museum, Arkitektur- och Designcentrum Stockholm, and works by Douglas Coupland.
