The series consists of 2241 architectural drawings by Ottawa architect, Werner E. Noffke which reflects not only the great breadth of one man's work but also one city's architecture over a 60-year period. Approximately 200 projects are represented in this series. Noffke's job book (to order this item please use barcode 2001071003), in which are listed the project number, name of clients, and prices, complements the drawings in this series. The drawings include residences, office and commercial buildings, exhibition halls and many churches, along with projects as diverse as buildings for foreign legations. A great deal of Noffke's work was done for the Government of Canada. While Noffke's early work is typical of Ottawa building of the time, his later designs show an appreciation of modern architectural modes and an eagerness to experiment with new styles.
