Arthur Erickson portrait
Erickson did well in the McGill course which at the time combined rigorous training in structural and related matters and considerable freedom in the arts. Two of his student projects survive in the collection: an office building in an early Miesian manner and an Arts Centre. He was literate, graphically able and won several prizes during his studies. He graduated with honours and obtained the coveted Hugh McLennan Travelling Scholarship. "And so after graduation I embarked on a two-and-a-half year odyssey following the development of Western architecture from its beginning in sequence through the Middle-East, Greece, Italy, Florence, France and Spain, then finally to England and Scandinavia."
