Patkau Architects, a group with a close relationship to UBC’s School of Architecture and Architecture, designed and built the Barnes House in Nanaimo, BC on a distinctly forested and rocky outcropping. I chose this set of drawings for their unique way of dealing with the terrain (& the subsequent “fake” section), and perspective in the roof and stair. The Patkaus are largely renowned for their honing of the west coast modern style and what Kenneth Frampton deems “critical regionalism.”
Along with a large scale poster, we also envisioned our alter egos as hockey players; collectible, representable. The subsequent Patkau “trading card” that resulted exploits their trademark heavy groundline to create a timeline of important works, from marriage, to present day.
