Arthur Erickson’s Dyde House premiered to a sold out Vancouver audience at the 2023 ADFF:Vancouver film festival. If you did not get the opportunity to see the festival screening, the film returns to the VIFF Centre in December 2023. Nestled among the aspen parkland of Alberta, a hidden masterpiece by one of Canada’s most celebrated architects has been found. Arthur Erickson’s Dyde House is a 54-minute documentary film telling the story of an undiscovered piece of history and the architects fighting for its future.

Vancouver’s most celebrated architect, Arthur Erickson gave us the Museum of Anthropology, the SFU campus at Burnaby Mountain, and Robson Square, among many other gems. But Dyde House, in Alberta, has often been overlooked. One of his earliest commissions, it’s a private home nestled among the aspen parklands, a hidden masterpiece that holds clues to Erickson’s philosophy, inspiration, his methods and his future large scale projects.
