At long last, here is a book of critical thought that analyzes Arthur Erickson's best work and situates it as a distinctive body of ideas within the mainstream of international architecture in the last half of the twentieth century. Nicholas Olsberg draws on Erickson's own discussion of ideas to present a thoughtful and illuminating reassessment of his most important work. Ricardo Castro's photography captures essential passages of the works as they have matured into their settings. Archival photographs, study models, drawings and plans show how the designs were evolved and their intent conveyed. Essays from Edward Dimendberg, Laurent Stalder and Georges Teyssot add an international and critical context.

This book was published in partnership with the Vancouver Art Gallery.
