Synopsis: During his 40-year career, architect Rand Iredale (1929-2000) initiated a compelling vision for the redevelopment of downtown Vancouver, was a mentor to some of BC's most accomplished architects practising today, and became one of the pioneers of heritage preservation in British Columbia. Throughout the book a chronology of selected projects is interwoven with guest essays and interviews, writings by Rand and Kathryn Iredale, and touching family anecdotes. A man of immense curiosity and generosity, Rand enjoyed both a mathematical mind and a philosophical soul. He was a great master planner and design collaborator on projects that included the Science Complex at Simon Fraser University, the Sedgewick Undergraduate Library at the University of British Columbia, the Westcoast Transmission Building in downtown Vancouver, and Place des Arts at Maillardville Heritage Square in Coquitlam."Finding a Good Fit" is ultimately about relationships: between land and building, engineer and architect, apprentice and mentor, husband and wife, father and child. And it is about partnerships: with family, friends, colleagues, clients, and communities.
