In Victor Lundy: Artist Architect, Donna Kacmar documents the architect’s early work in the Sarasota School of Architecture, his churches, and his government buildings. The book features essays on Lundy’s use of light and material as well as many of his original drawings, paintings, and sketches, now held at the Library of Congress and reproduced here for the first time.
Born in 1923, Victor Lundy is an important figure in the history of American architecture. Trained in both the Beaux Arts and Bauhaus traditions, he built an impressive practice ranging from small-scale residential and commercial buildings to expressive religious buildings and preeminent institutional works.
