Abstract: The thesis deals with the application and testing of modern critical theory of architecture at the Sedgewick Library. Through the works of John Ruskin, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Robert Venturi, selected as prototypes of modern architectural thought from the extensive literature their formula or code for good architecture was determined. These formulas or codes were then applied to an assessment of the design of the Sedgewick Library, an award winning design representative of the best architectural work in Canada during the contemporary architectural period.
