The desire for a unique Canadian style led to a revival of the Neo-Gothic style during the interwar period. Gothic architecture had become closely associated with Canada.
Another popular style of arhitecture in Canada is Postmodern architecture. Postmodern architecture was the mainstream style in Canada by the 1980s. Architects produced what they perceived to be more meaningful buildings with pluralism, double coding, flying buttresses and high ceilings, irony and paradox, and contextualism.
