17 ALLI E D ARTS The Russell building, by architectural firm Smith, Carter, Parkin, was considered to be one of the earliest and most significant International Style buildings in the Prairies. 74 While significant for the women who were now receiving formal degrees in the field, the change was a direct result of the entrance of male students into interior design programs following the return of veterans from the Second World War. 76 Craft played a significant role in the requisite courses, with the result that when the graduates moved into professional careers as decorating consultants, department store designers, draftsmen in architectural or engineering firms or planning research firms, or as independent interior designers, they arrived with a knowledge of the history, materials, and processes of craft.

As I shall outline in this chapter, Semper’s argument that craft lays the foundation for architecture may have waxed and waned in popularity, but it proves enduring, particularly in relation to the strong metaphysical link between the creation of spaces of contemplation by architects, and the reflective objects employed in these spaces as conceptualized by craftspeople. Through an examination of specific shared materials such as concrete, and a study of Heidegger’s emphasis upon techne, I will propose that matter, material, and the immaterial are inseparable within the Allied Arts.

20 The crafts became viewed as trades to support architecture, rather than part of an architect’s knowledge base. 24 As the Industrial Revolution increased the international exchange of goods, however, architects were no longer restricted to using vernacular materials, and with a wider pool to draw upon, it became easier to import skilled artisans to execute their designs. In the face of expanding trade, while Ruskin and Morris’s nostalgic archetype of the united architect/craftsperson sounded like a positive force to fight industrial capitalism, it remained a romanticized ideal.
