Mid-Century Modern Freak

Atomic. Futurist. Populuxe. Googie. Modernist. Vintage Pop Culture.

Architect Victor Lundy’s signature style is “More Roof Than Wall”. A product of Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, Lundy studied under Modern masters Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer, and was considered the “wildman of the class”. Lundy started his colorful career in Sarasota along with fellow classmate, Paul Rudolph. He became a member of the “Sarasota School,” a group of influential modernist designers in Sarasota during this time. Lundy became nationally renown for his detailed roof designs. The Warm Mineral Springs Motel built in 1958 is a perfect example of multiple concrete roof canopies, of varying heights, providing an air of distinction and putting on display his brilliant architectural style. Lundy’s roofs magically float over clear glass panels in a state of grace and suspension. Photos: Joe Scherschel
