The Arthur Erickson Fund for Excellence

Arthur Erickson's family is honouring the spirit and the legacy of this great Canadian by creating a permanent fund in his memory.

The purpose of the Arthur Erickson Fund is to promote, in memory of Arthur, original and beautiful design that is culturally and environmentally sensitive. The Fund will be used to:

  • educate people regarding Arthur's principles of good design, original thought and global perspective,
  • preserve Arthur's legacy of remarkable building and other works,
  • advocate for his principle of integration between built and natural environments,
  • and eventually support a travelling scholarship for a young Canadian architect.
