SALA West Coast Modern House Series: Binning House
@Inform Interiors

May 4th
5 to 7pm @50 Water St

You are invited to join us in the celebration of the launch of Architect Matthew Soules and Photographer Michael Perlmutter’s new book, Binning House.

Binning House is arguably the first significant piece of modern residential architecture in Western Canada. Still standing in West Vancouver as a National Historic Site, the Binning House has influenced generations of architects and continues to do so today. The structure is often thought to be the beginning of Canada’s West Coast Modernism movement as it represents both the arrival of Modernist design principles and their inflection with local interests and conditions. Beyond his direct engagement with architecture, Binning is a key figure in Canadian art history who is renowned for his painting and drawing, with work held by major institutions including the National Gallery of Art. The confluence of his art and architecture amounts to a modest but breathtaking structure.

RSVP is required, please fill out this form to attend.
