Manitoba Legislative Building @ Home
Easily one of Canada’s – nay, North America’s most fascinating buildings, the true meaning of the Manitoba Legislative Building’s architecture escaped the view of historians and visitors for nearly a century.
It wasn’t until Dr. Frank Albo revealed the building – which was started in 1913 and completed in 1920 – to be a modern homage to Solomon’s Temple, with both his book The Hermetic Code and corresponding tour that he runs with Heartland International Travel and Tours.
While you can’t currently embark on a Hermetic Code Tour (2020 dates were originally scheduled to run April 22 to September 16 on Wednesday nights), you can watch this fascinating documentary by Canadiana called Winnipeg’s Secret Code. It does a top-notch job telling the history of the building, examining its unique architect and architecture, while shedding light on Winnipeg’s early 20th-century history – all in just 18 minutes!
