Arthur Erickson and Lili Vieira de Carvalho

One of the most influential Canadian architects, Arthur Erickson was known for his use of glass in very elegant buildings. I had the pleasure and honour to have met him last December during the celebration of Diane Farris Gallery’s 25th anniversary. We chatted about Brazilian architecture and the adventure of building a modern city from scratch in the 60s, Brasilia. A gentleman and a very talented man.
