This year marks the centenary of Canada’s pre-eminent architect Arthur Erickson. Vancouver-born and raised, Erickson developed an interest first in the arts and then in the study of architecture, leading to an eclectic career with international impact that spanned six decades and produced some of Canada’s most iconic structures. Erickson defined site, light, cadence, and space as his four first principles of architecture, elements that are each critical to the understanding of his design explorations. From these, he created some of our region’s most cherished modern buildings, from single family residences to our most significant cultural and civic spaces. On Wednesday, July 10th, join the West Coast Modern League with the West Vancouver Art Museum at The Polygon Gallery as we celebrate the centenary and the built legacy of Arthur Erickson through the lens of local designers who have revisited the famed architect’s work. Through active renewal and preservation, this group has helped to shepherd these iconic structures forward, working to safeguard their physical longevity and continued inspiration for future generations. They will share these projects with us.

Presented by the West Coast Modern League in partnership with the West Vancouver Art Museum and The Polygon Gallery.
