Arthur Erickson, RIP

Architect Arthur Erickson has passed away, the Vancouver Sun reports. Some of his notable buildings include Robson Square, the Canadian pavillion at the 1967 Expo, the Anthropology museum in Vancouver, and the Museum of Glass. This morning's NY Times talks about how his buildings worked with the landscape and created great outdoor spaces:

“His work always came out of the earth,” Ms. Lambert said. “He didn’t start the way most architects started. He actually started off with the earth, the landscape, and made something that inhabited the land.”
