Victor Lundy: Infinite Span, Architecture beyond Sarasota exhibition

Curated by Christopher Domin

McCulloch Pavilion, 265 S. Orange Avenue (11:00 am to 4:00 pm daily)

This exhibition explores the architectural legacy of Victor Lundy, a central figure of the Sarasota School of Architecture. Positioning himself as an insider and outlier simultaneously, Lundy seemed to revel in the unconventional and developed a highly personal approach to space-making that would distinguish him from his Sarasota School counterparts. The exhibition examines the material, structural, and spatial typologies that came to define Lundy’s practice, with a focus on his work beyond Sarasota.

All proceeds from Sarasota MOD Weekend directly support Architecture Sarasota’s mission and work.
