You might say 2018 was the year of Victor Lundy. Donna Kacmar released her monograph on the legendary architect in October, sparking a renewed interest in Lundy's impressive (and very underappreciated) body of work. Undoubtedly, there's been lots of Lundy love lately, so it is really no surprise that my January post on his bubble pavilions for the 1964 New York World's Fair just happened to be my most read entry of the year (BONUS: included is an anecdote about Philip Johnson, another much talked about architectural figure of 2018). My admiration and affection for Mr. Lundy's work runs deep, so I couldn't be more pleased with the attention the 95-year-old architect is receiving these days. It is much deserved.

This architectural historian cannot stop thinking about buildings, food, and that vintage rug she found online.
