Join us for a lecture about Ron Thom, an architect who fought to instill the human spirit in the built environment. Educated at the Vancouver School of Art, he brought an artist’s approach to his work, first in the Vancouver area with the BC Electric Building and landmark homes, and then in Ontario with Massey College, the Shaw Festival theatre, and other masterpieces. This lecture will focus on the recently published Ron Thom, Architect, a biography by Adele Weder, which showcases the life, work, and creative forces behind one of the most important Canadian architects of the 20th century.
Presented in partnership with the Architecture Foundation of BC, the West Vancouver Art Museum, and the West Vancouver Historical Society.
