COMPETITIONS

(with George C. Shattuck) MONTREAL, QUE., Liverpool, London & Globe Insurance Co., Place d'Armes at St. James Street, 1901. Maxwell & Shattuck were one of six firms invited to submit designs for this large office building (Gazette [Montreal], 7 Aug. 1901, 5; C.R., xii, 14 Aug. 1901, 3). The firm of Hutchison & Wood was later declared as the winner.
MONTREAL, QUE., Medical Building, McGill University, Pine Avenue, 1907. Eight local Montreal architectural firms were invited to submit designs for this major educational project (Gazette [Montreal], 22 July 1907, 3). The design prepared by the Maxwell brothers was set aside by the Jury, and the commission was awarded to Brown & Vallance. However, the drawings submitted by the Maxwell brothers have survived, and are now in the Maxwell Coll., Canadian Architecture Collection, McGill University.
OTTAWA, ONT., Departmental & Justice Buildings, Major's Hill Park, 1907. Thirty schemes were submitted to the jurors and were evaluated by Edmund Burke of Toronto, who awarded the First Premium to the design by E. & W.S. Maxwell (Evening Journal [Ottawa], 30 Aug. 1907, 8, illus. & descrip.; C.A.B., xx, Sept. 1907, 175-83, illus. & descrip.; Const., i, Oct. 1907, 42-3, 48-9, illus. & descrip.). He found their scheme 'simply and conveniently arranged' but stated that '.....the architecture is disappointing (and) lacks impressiveness and dignity' (C.A.B., xx, Sept. 1907, 184). The government reneged on its commitment to build the winning design and later asked David Ewart to design a more modest block.
WINNIPEG, MAN., Legislative Building, 1912. The jury received sixty-seven designs from architects in Europe, the United States and Canada. The classical proposal by the Maxwell brothers was one of five finalists (Const., v, Nov. 1912, 75, illus.; M. Baker, Symbol in Stone: Manitoba's Third Leglislative Building, 1986, 33, illus.; dwgs. in the Maxwell Coll., McGill University). The commission was later awarded to Frank Simon of Liverpool, Engl.
WINNIPEG, MAN., City Hall, 1913. Edward & W.S. Maxwell were one of 39 architectural firms from across Canada who submitted plans in this national competition, but they were not among the five finalists (City of Winnipeg Archives, Council Communications, 1913, Box A169, Item 9741, list of entrants). The original drawings showing the Maxwell design have survived, and are held in the Maxwell Coll., McGill University. The winners were Clemesha & Portnall of Regina, but their scheme was never built.
OTTAWA, ONT., Departmental Buildings, Wellington Street, 1914. More than 60 competitors from Commonwealth countries submitted designs for this major commission, but only six were elevated to Stage Two, and the project was never realized. Unlike their winning design for Departmental Buildings in 1907, their scheme in this competition was not even premiated (NAC, RG11, Vol. 2952, File 5370-1B). A bird's eye perspective of their design appears in Charles C. Hill, edit., Artists, Architects & Artisans - Canadian Art 1890-1918, 2013, 242, illus. & descrip. The original drawing by Mexwell, submitted as a diploma work to the Royal Canadian Academy, is now held by the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa.
REGINA, SASK., War Memorial Museum, 1919. Eight Canadian firms were invited to submit designs for this project. The Maxwell office proposed a formal Beaux-Arts scheme inspired by the Pantheon (Const., xii, Sept. 1919, 276-9, 282, 285, illus. & descrip.). The winners were Nobbs & Hyde, but their design was not built.
