At long last, here is a book of critical thought that analyzes Arthur Erickson's best work and situates it as a distinctive body of ideas within the mainstream of international architecture in the last half of the twentieth century. Nicholas Olsberg draws on Erickson's own discussion of ideas to present a thoughtful and illuminating reassessment of his most important work.
