Every aspect of Peter Dickinson’s life was large, from his height to his wife – a former model – from his ambition to his social standing. England could not contain him. He needed a larger stage and that is what he found here. The architecture he set into motion was like him: big, fresh and bold. It was not only modern, it had an audacious individualistic style that twisted and turned in new and magnificent ways.
This is the first comprehensive catalogue on Canadian architect Peter Dickinson. The 304-page catalogue traces the life and work of Dickinson from his beginnings in England to his life in Canada.
