- Written in celebration of the saving of Friedman House: a historical milestone of modernist architecture
The Friedman House is a modernist icon, designed by Frederic Lasserre, founder of the UBC School of Architecture, and landscaped by Cornelia Oberlander. Faced with demolition, it was saved by purchasers who understood its architectural value and historical significance. This book reflects on the possibility of its destruction, remarking on what has been salvaged by its continued existence, and what could have potentially been lost.
