The new Arthur Erickson website is launched

Replacing the original website started in 1998, the new website is perhaps the largest independent architectural website in the world- with over 440 photos, all accompanied by text, in 3 main categories: Buildings, Houses, Interiors and Planning.

Over time there will be many updates, as the amount of material is so vast, it is not possible to include everything in this initial launch. Most people are aware of only a small number of projects Arthur designed, so we hope this will help to educate and enrich their understanding of this great Canadian.
