      Have to go with the Mcleod Building. May not be as visually impressive as the Hotel Mac and the Leg, but it provides a street pressence that is just about perfect.

                  The Arts Building at the U of A. Gorgeously restored and renovated about 10 years ago. Also the Dentistry-Pharmacy Building (originally built as the Medical Sciences Building).
                  Almost always open to debate...

                    I agree. I hadn't realized how many great old buildings there were on campus, till I walked around there a year ago. I liked the old library, with the great study hall at the one end.

                        My vote goes to the Shaw Building for sure.

                              I love the Dentistry-Pharmacy building at the U of A, and Rutherford House, and definitely the McLeod on 100 Street.
