Description - Finding a Good Fit by Sheila Martineau
Vancouver is one of the most architecturally striking cities in the world, but it is impossible to understand a city without understanding its builders. The city owes much of its unique beauty to the creative vision of architect Rand Iredale. A man greatly influenced by both his mathematical mind and a philosophical soul, Iredale served as mentor to some of British Columbia's most accomplished architects. Together they helped to shape architectural attitudes, conceived greater possibilities, and made Vancouver into a dynamic model of liveability that is at one with its natural terrain and colourful heritage. Lovingly assembled, "Finding a Good Fit" is a family album that collects many of the important episodes and moments in Iredale's life and explores the nature of relationships -- between land and building, husband and wife, apprentice and mentor -- and the importance of building partnerships with family, friends, colleagues, clients, and communities.
