Bo Helliwell and Kim Smith

  • Featuring spectacular designs from this outstanding Canadian firm stunning full-colour photography.

The work of Helliwell and Smith is deeply involved with the ecology and topography of southern British Columbia and their projects underscore the dramatic interweave of sea, forest and rock.
