Play House :The Architecture of Daniel Evan White
STATUS : EXHIBITION OCTOBER 2013 - MARCH 2014
LOCATION : VANCOUVER, BC
CLIENT : MUSEUM OF VANCOUVER
Museum of Vancouver October 2013 - March 2014
With the Museum of Vancouver, and faculty from the UBC School of Architecture, we designed an exhibition to survey the idiosyncratic work of prolific but little-known West-coast modernist architect, Daniel Evan White. Over a 40-year career, White designed dozens of highly formal and sculptural residences, pursuing a geometric rigour and spatial inventiveness that both engaged the coastal landscape of Vancouver and challenged conventions of domestic space.
Consisting of models, drawings, toys, images, interviews and films, the exhibition explored and drew upon Dan White's playful preoccupation with geometry, scale, abstraction, and symmetry.
