Arthur Erickson Photo Tribute

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Yesterday Vancouver lost an icon who helped shape many city skylines. World-renowned architect Arthur Erickson passed away at the age of 84 and included below are some photos I’ve found that capture just some of his influence on our region.
