Description

In this slim, amply illustrated volume, Vancouver, BC, urbanist Keith Higgins provides a natural history and typology of the “Vancouver Special,” a housing type that proliferated from the 1960s through the mid-1980s. Distilled from Higgins’s vast online archive, the book ultimately recommends that we go outside and wander the streets of Vancouver to see these very special houses with our own eyes. With 24 black & white photographs.
