A SENSE OF PLACE: ART AT VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. Robin Laurence. Figure 1 Publishing, Vancouver, 2015. 128 pp. with 81 col. ills. 26 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781927958261 In English.
Note: the publication also cites the ISBN for a hardcover edition that was not produced. Publisher's description: A spectacular overview of one of the most highly acclaimed art collections on the West Coast, which greets travelers at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) as they journey between land, sea, and sky. The airport which is known for its modern design and expansive topography, offers an impressive visual display of award-winning art and architecture. Each terminal building represents the culture heritage, natural beauty, and iconic experiences that embody British Columbia, and the artwork exhibited throughout plays an integral role in telling those stories. Revered in particular for its focus on Pacific Coast Native art, the collection is presented in the thematic groupings of land, sea, and sky -- three realms that intersect at YVR. In A Sense of Place, art historian and critic Robin Laurence will examine the commissioning of dozens of striking artworks as a response to the airport's overall architectural and design plan, and particularly as a reflection of the cultural heritage and natural environment identified with the province of British Columbia.
