There’s always fun and interesting events happening in Vancouver. Below are some current and upcoming events. I hope this helps you enjoy exploring Vancouver.

Eppich House II, The Story of An Arthur Erickson Masterwork Book Launch

Thursday, March 21, 2019
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Inform Interiors, 50 Water Street, Vancouver
Tickets: free

‘Eppich House II tells the story, through stunning images and Arthur Erickson’s own words, of how a unique collaboration with “dream clients” resulted in Erickson’s most striking residence. It’s a daring experiment that embodies Erickson’s West Coast modernist ideas about site, material, and form.’

Below is picture from the event where the project architect is chatting about the outcome.
