Victor Lundy never seems to get the credit he deserves. This modernist-cum-expressionist bounced his way through architecture scenes all through the fifties, sixties, and seventies—Sarasota and New York schools. Still working in Texas, he's continually driven to create beautiful form and experiment with materials: wood, pneumatics, paint. His ambitious air-structures, designed for the Atomic Energy Commission and the 1968 World's Fair were conceptualized and built independently from the avant-gardes working exploring similar themes.
My profile Victor Victorious is this month's Dwell Magazine. Here's a snippet:
I have to thank both Michael Kubo and Michael Meredith for bringing Lundy's work to my attention. Also, I would be remiss if I didn't thank Victor himself, my irascible subject, for all the conversations, stories, and materials he provided.
