the museum of vancouver is pleased to feature play house, an exhibition of highly-regarded vancouver architect daniel evan white who passed away last year. this retrospective will explore the creative process of white’s innovative talent.

this major retrospective exhibition documents the exceptional and original body of work of a relatively unknown architect working on canada’s west coast through the late modern period. play house ventures through daniel evan white’s mind, hands, and eyes to explore the creative process that transforms the dream home from desire into reality. the exhibition includes stories from clients and contractors, a replica of the máté house built to 1:4 scale, projections, smaller models, 3D computer models, and an area where visitors can get hands on with some of dan’s favourite geometric shapes.
