Easily Canada's most respected and internationally prominent architect, Vancouver native Arthur Erickson has shaped Vancouver's urban and architectural character for the 55 years since his graduation from McGill University. His urban ideas inspired Vancouverism, while his architecture has set off a wide interest in building-as-landscape and landscape-as-building amongst his Western Canadian peers (the Patkaus, Douglas Cardinal, etc.). First with a string of post-and-beam wooden houses that defined the Pacific Northwest modernist idiom, he has achieved global recognition with buildings such as the Simon Fraser University, Canadian Chancery Washington, Tacoma's Glass Museum, Kuwait's Ministry of Oil, and Cambridgeshire's Knapp Laboratories
