Custodial history

Scope and content

Records consist primarily of slides along with several photographs. The slides reflect projects that Cardew designed and built, including key projects such as the CN Pavilion at Expo ‘86, Lignum Sawmill Offices in Williams Lake, Crown Life Building (now known by its address at 1500 West Georgia), the Stone (Yunesit’in) Band School, False Creek Townhouses, and the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery at the University of British Columbia, as well as his best known exhibition, Peter Cardew, Ordinary Buildings. Project slides include images of drawings, plans, models, and completed structures. There are also slides of various buildings that may have served as inspiration for his designs.
