Abstract (in English)

The Mennonite house of Western Canada offers a special opportunity to examine the effects of migration on traditional building form. The Mennonites, a religious group originating in Western Europe, experiences a series of major migrations during their 450 year history. Beginning in the first half of the sixteenth century Dutch Mennonites began an eastward movement that was to take them to the Vistula River Delta of Northern Poland and later, in the eighteenth century to the Southern Ukraine.
