West Coast Modernism going going gone

McNab Residence

Vancouver is full of Modernist architectural gems - many of which are being demolished and replaced with pink marble and glass and constitute a whole other post.

The work of Duncan McNab, one of BC's 'lesser known modernists', may fall victim to the wrecking ball simply because of his lack of flamboyancy. Sometimes lost among the West Coast Modernist name droppings of Arthur Erickson and Ron Thom, McNab stands out with his clear, simple European and some may argue Japanese influences.
