From Inside Today's Home, 1975
by Ray and Sarah Faulkner
p. 453

"Architect Arthur Erickson composed a home in Vancouver, British Columbia, as a series of interlocking horizontal terraces. Natural materials and a reflecting pool relate the structure to the lake and rocky cliff on either side. Tall panes of glass and vertically ribbed cedar walls re surmounted by horizontal wooden slabs that prject beyond corners as geometrical accents."

[I'm pretty sure they don't mean "lake," as this is a manmade pond right next to the ocean.]

UPDATE: Thanks everyone (shade tree and Electrospark) for pointing out that this is a reproduction (however loose) of the Trinity Gadget, an explosive nuclear device at the Los Alamos lab. See the comments for links. If anyone knows who took this photo, please comment below. The photo came from a piece on the Venice architecture biennale.
