UBC’s School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, in partnership with ORO Editions, is set to launch the next in their series of books capturing the essence of the place and the people behind some of our regions most significant and celebrated examples of West Coast Modern architecture. “Smith II House,” by Michael Prokopow, reflects on this landmark of West Coast Modernism commissioned by Gordon and Marion Smith, and designed by Arthur Erickson.

Other titles in the series include “House Shumiatcher” by Leslie Van Duzer, “Downs House II” by Chris MacDonald, “Merrick House” by Tony Robins, “Binning House” by Matthew Soules, “Freidman House” by Richard Cavell, and “Copp House” by Adele Weder. Each book is an opportunity to engage more intimately with a uniquely-designed architectural icon, the great Canadian architect who designed it, and the architectural movement that has come to so heavily influence the traditions, values and principles of our design community and city building efforts.
