Finding a Good Fit: The Life and Work of Architect Rand Iredale by Kathryn Iredale, 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 livability that is at one with its natural terrain and colorful 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.
