500 Connaught Dr, Jasper, AB T0E 1E0, CanadaJasper Information Centre(Architectural Gems)(Photos Taken: 23-Jun-2019)Link
Plaque Wording: Jasper Information Centre This building is one of the finest and most influential examples of rustic architecture in Canada's national parks. Designed by A.M. Calderon and completed in 1914, it introduced a building tradition based on the use of local construction materials, in this case cobblestone and timber. The facility originally housed park administration offices, a museum, and living quarters for the park superintendent. As the first major building in the townsite, it helped to define the character of Jasper's early development and provided a conspicuous landmark that greeted park visitors upon their arrival by train.

Kassiesbaai, Arniston, South AfricaKassius Bay(Architectural Gems)(Photos Taken: 26-Mar-2017)Link
Plaque Wording: Kassiesbaai
A fishing community had probably already been settled here on crown land by 1820, five years after the shipwreck of the Arniston. After passing into the successive ownership of the Swart and Pratt families, the settlement and ten morgen of land were transferred to the Waenhuiskrans Fishermen's Union in 1937. In 1970, when threatened by the Group Areas Act, the village was saved and subsequently restored by the Preserve Arniston Committee. Kassiesbaai is one of the few remaining traditional fishing villages in the vernacular style once prevalent in the South Western Cape.
