Play House: The Architecture of Daniel Evan White
In the only retrospective published of his work, Play House: The Architecture of Daniel Evan White is a exhibition catalogue that delves into the wide-ranging and innovative career of west coast modernist Daniel Evan White. Play House: The Architecture of Daniel Evan White ran from the October 2013 to March 2014 at the Museum of Vancouver.
“Daniel Evan White knew exactly how to play with houses. The modest Vancouver architect drove innovation along the west coast from 1960 to 2012, creating homes that his clients claim were life changing. Discover his remarkable work in this first retrospective of his career.
Play House ventures through Daniel Evan White’s mind, hands, and eyes to explore the creative process that transforms the dream home from desire into reality. The exhibition includes stories from clients and contractors, a replica of the Máté House built to 1:4 scale, projections, smaller models, 3D computer models, and an area where visitors can get hands on with some of Dan’s favourite geometric shapes.
The exhibition refreshes our ideas of the typical house and its functions, with each featured project becoming a commentary on contemporary culture, innovation, risk, and the idea of play. Yet again, the MOV strikes out to introduce Vancouverites to one of their own incredibly talented people.” – Museum of Vancouver
