Architect Arthur Erickson dead at 84

Vancouver Architect Arthur Erickson has just passed peacefully at the age of 84. I made some work recently that was in tribute to the house above (Graham House) which was torn down two years ago. The house, built in the 60s, was Erickson's showpiece and launched his reputation as an architect that could build on the 'impossible lot'. I think a piece of Arthur went with the house, and into his multiple hi-rise, and residential buildings that have gone up in the last few years sucking his will to live. RIP
