6:30 to 7:30 pm: Presentation by Kiriko Watanabe with Peter Pratt
Kiriko Watanabe is co-author and curator of Selwyn Pullan: Photographing Mid-Century West Coast Modernism and curator of From the Inside Out: Integrating Art and Architecture on the West Coast. She is Assistant Curator at the West Vancouver Museum and organizes the Museum’s annual West Coast Modern Home Tour. Kiriko will share some ideas that guided her selection of houses, artworks, crafts, and furniture in the exhibition, and provide in-depth information relevant to the understanding of midcentury modern art and architecture in Vancouver.
Peter Pratt has 35 years of experience as a design/project architect, and a wealth of knowledge. His father, Ned Pratt, is an architectural legend, who was an influential figure at Vancouver’s prestigious firm, Thompson, Berwick & Pratt. In 1951, Ned Pratt built his second family home to experiment new building technologies and materials and showcase his innovative designs. Peter has recently restored and updated the house sixty years after his father built it, linking the original structure by a cedar pagoda to an addition housing a contemporary kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms.
