Thoughts on the Contributions of Architect Gary Cunningham
Gary Cunningham is the most exuberant modernist in Dallas. Gary Cunningham received an intense education at Cistercian School. He then went to the University of Texas at Austin and worked for the St. Louis firm Helmut-Obata-Kassebaum (HOK). Rick Brettell describes his work as "a complex process of strong juxtapositions, diverse materials and architectural accident." Gary Cunningham explores inexpensive and expensive pre-fabricated and indigenous materials, while actively engaging himself, the craftsmen and contractors involved with the project. His design is visually stimulating -- a perfectly orchestrated explosion of materials and textures creating a graceful space, inviting the person to look outward into the surrounding environment.
