A TRIBUTE TO ONE OF THE GREATEST CANADIAN ARCHITECTS

Arthur Charles Erickson, architect (b. 14 June 1924, Vancouver, BC; d. 20 May 2009, Vancouver BC), studied at University of British Columbia and McGill University (Montreal). Erickson completed his architectural training in 1950. Army service took him to Asia, and after graduation he travelled in Europe and the Middle East. In partnership with Geoffrey Massey he began private practice in Vancouver in 1953; their success in the design competition for SFU in 1963 brought them international attention.
