B.C. Binning taught that architecture has an intrinsic link to art and life. This book follows in his footsteps, focussing on what is arguably his greatest creation: the first significant piece of modern residential architecture in Western Canada, the BC Binning House. Still standing in West Vancouver as a National Historic Site, the house has influenced generations of architects and continues to do so today. The structure is often thought to have sparked Canada’s West Coast Modernism movement, as it represents both the arrival of Modernist design principles and their inflection with local interests and conditions.
