      Description
      Eppich House 2 tells the story, through gorgeous images and Arthur Erickson?s own words, of how a unique collaboration with 'dream clients' resulted in his most striking residence. One glimpse of the cascading steel beams mirrored in the reflecting pond and it's clear that the Hugo and Brigitte Eppich house is a singular achievement, a daring experiment that embodies Erickson's West Coast modernist ideas about site, material, and form. Erickson's first steel residence explores both the structural and aesthetic possibilities of the material, with curved beams, dyed cladding, and milled furnishings designed by Francisco Kripacz-all features that would have been near impossible on a regular commission. But after seeing the first Eppich House, built for Hugo's twin brother Helmut, Hugo entrusted Erickson with creating and furnishing the entire house, inside and out-another first for Erickson-and made available the Eppic brothers' steel fabricating plants, which built virtually every component of the home. Architecture expert Greg Bellerby weaves into his essay extensive interviews with Erickson, Eppich, and architect Nick Milkovich, as well as contributions from Cornelia Oberlander, the home's landscape designer, to tell the fascinating story of an uncommon vision, realized in steel and glass

      "A 'masterwork.' That's what author Greg Bellerby calls this house by Arthur Erickson in West Vancouver, a hillside aerie in white steel and glass block. He's right, and this coffee-table book, Eppich House II: The Story of an Arthur Erickson Masterwork, is beautifully presented and clearly and thoroughly written. Most important, it makes a strong argument for this house by one of Canada's great architects." - Alex Bozikovic, The Globe and Mail

      Description
      For more than 100 years, Vancouver has been home to a vibrant and thriving Cantonese opera scene. As a performance art carried out by transient troupes, it is an ephemeral medium that rarely leaves a trace in the historic records. However, an extraordinary treasure trove of early 20th-century Cantonese opera costumes, props, and stage dressings made its way to the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver, BC. In the first book-length study of this little known collection, April Liu retraces the arduous journeys of early Cantonese opera troupes who began arriving along the west coast of North America during the mid-19th century. A close examination of the costumes and props reveal the moving songs, stories, performances, and ritual practices of early Chinese migrant communities who struggled to make a home in a foreign and often hostile land.
      Bio
      Dr. April Liu completed her PhD at the University of British Columbia in 2012, with a specialization in Chinese art history. Liu has served as the Curator of Public Programs and Engagement at the Museum of Anthropology at UBC and as an instructor in the Critical and Cultural Studies Department at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, teaching courses on Asian art, visual culture, and global modernity. She has organized numerous festivals, arts programs, and research projects involving the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage in Asia and Canada, and served as an expert consultant for UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage section in 2016. Her current research interests include Cantonese Opera, contemporary Asian art, critical approaches to intangible cultural heritage, and the visualization of heritage and memory amongst Asian diasporas.
