Post-war Vancouver was a hotbed of modern design in architecture and landscape architecture. Under the tutelage of mentors B.C. Binning and Fred Lasserre, a generation of young architects and landscape architects pioneered the West Coast Style. Inspired by the stunning landscapes of coastal B.C., these artists incorporated international influences into a unique style that responded directly to the local environment.
Among this wave of innovative thinkers were Jewish architects Wolfgang Gerson, Peter Oberlander, Leonora Markovich, and Judah Schumiatcher, and landscape architect Cornelia Oberlander.
Featuring a panel discusssion between exhibition curator Chanel Blouin, Judah Schumiatcher, and architecture historian Rhodri Windsor-Liscombe.
