Westminster School — 1951

13712 104 Avenue, Edmonton

Designed by: W.W. Butchart 
Built by: Parsons
Original Owner: Edmonton Public School Board

Westminster School is an excellent example of the International Style, which is typified by the use of clean horizontal lines, flat roofs, large expanses of horizontally-composed windows and two colours of brick that reinforce the building’s horizontal emphasis. The main entrance is offset, creating an asymmetrical form at the front of the building. A flagpole sets off this formal entrance and provides a point of visual interest.
