Blue Sky was born out of the ferment of the late 1960s and early 1970s, but it has proved to have much more talent, tenacity and imagination than most other idealistic initiatives from that time. Blue Sky's work proves that even in the 21st century, Arts and Craft style can work on the West Coast.
The projects contained in this book are inspirational and humane: Blue Sky are inheritors of the Organic tradition of Modernism. 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.
