Arthur Erickson's Dyde House film image

Vancouver’s most celebrated architect, Arthur Erickson gave us the Museum of Anthropology, the SFU campus at Burnaby Mountain, and Robson Square, among many other gems. But Dyde House, in Alberta, has often been overlooked. One of his earliest commissions, it’s a private home nestled among the aspen parklands, a hidden masterpiece that holds clues to Erickson’s philosophy, inspiration, his methods and his future large scale projects. This 53-minute film artfully tells the story of an undiscovered piece of history and the architects fighting for its future.
