On Thursday, November 16th, Cory Buckner will lecture on her latest book, THE LYMAN HOUSE AND THE WORK OF FREDERIC P. LYMAN. Lyman was a modernist architect who not only made his mark on the profession, but also on Buckner's career: "I met Frederic Lyman in 1969—an event that would change my life and move my career in a direction towards architecture."
The Lyman House was the architect's signature project, an exquisitely designed and crafted home he built in Malibu, which has been compared to a Shinto shrine. The book captures the incredible details of the home's design and construction through an array of photographs and the architect's own original sketches. Also included is an extensive portfolio of Lyman's projects and renderings, many of which have never been published before. While Lyman saw very few of his commissions built, each is represented with beautifully rendered colored pencil perspectives—artworks unto themselves. Buckner writes, "In an era of digital rendering and mass production, Lyman's deep sensitivity to line, form, and color reminds us of the beauty of depth possible in the lost arts of hand rendering and fine craftsmanship."
