Journeys to the East: Arthur Erickson and Japan

The Arthur Erickson Conservancy presents an illustrated lecture by Professor Michelangelo Sabatino, who, in the summer of 2009, retraced Arthur Erickson’s first journey to Japan in 1961, revisiting the sites Erickson mentioned in his seminal articles in Canadian Architect in the 1960s. Sabatino will discuss the effect of Erickson’s journeys to Japan on his work, including the Osaka Pavilion for Expo ’70. This illustrated presentation will be followed by a Q + A discussion with Sabatino and a reception in the atrium.

Michelangelo Sabatino is a professor at the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture, University of Houston, Texas.
The event will take place at 7:00pm on Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at the Vancity Theatre + Atrium, Vancouver International Film Centre, located at 1181 Seymour Street in Vancouver.
