Douglas Simpson: West Coast Modernist

The AIBC recently held its annual conference with one of the panels focusing on the work of local modernist Douglas Simpson. Along with Harold Semmens he formed Semmens + Simpson Architects and between 1949 and 1957 designed a number of prominent buildings in Vancouver, including the old Vancouver Public Library, Hycroft and St. Anselm's Church (seen above).

See this page for information on Simpson's work, created by his son Gregg.
