The City of Edmonton adopted an urban plan in 1907 that was modelled after the "City Beautiful" model of axial boulevards terminating in grand vistas and focal points. The University of Alberta followed suit with its "City Beautiful" plan, which included a ring of faculty houses off of its beautiful Convocation Hall. This presentation looks at that urban plan, and the Ring Houses that form an intrinsic part.
