The Spirit of Place: Interpreting Landscape through Architecture

This booklet was created from the text and slideshow of architect Richard Iredale’s guest lecture on ‘the spirit of place,’ presented at the UBC School of Architecture (Spring 2007).

“This lecture explores one architect’s efforts to interpret the spirit of our land by using its rugged landscape as the starting point for design.” (Richard H. Iredale)
