Read through the most famous quotes from Arthur Erickson
Inspiration in Science may have to do with ideas, but not in Art. In art it is in the senses that are instinctively responsive to the medium of expression. ↗
Rationalism is the enemy of art, though necessary as a basis for architecture. ↗
The details are the very source of expression in architecture. But we are caught in a vice between art and the bottom line. ↗
Only when inspired to go beyond consciousness by some extraordinary insight does beauty manifest unexpectedly. ↗
The personal selection of Arthur Erickson as the architect for the Canadian Embassy in Washington DC by then-Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau was controversial because Trudeau overruled the objections and choices of the embassy's design committee. In 1963 Erickson and Massey submitted the winning design for Simon Fraser University. In 1986 he received the AIA Gold Medal.
He studied Asian languages at the University of British Columbia and later earned a degree in architecture from McGill University.
