whenever i travel, like most architecture nerds, i check and see if there's any cool building around to look at. finding myself in connecticut this summer i scoured blogs and articles looking for structures to visit. now the glass house always pops up, but i've been there, done that, got the shirt. i was looking for something new. thankfully i found an article of sort of a forgotten modernist church by victor a. lundy. it was the first unitarian church in westport. an architect and building i had not heard of.
before heading there, i called the church. it's not really a "touring" site but they said i could stroll the grounds and check it out. walking around the incredible site i was taken aback. it was a very interesting and inspiring structure. very flw apprentices looking, melding nature and organic forms with modernism. i was so struck by it, i actually called the office and asked if i could come back on sunday to view the inside, to which they said yes.
i'm so glad this building popped up on my google search. like all well-designed spaces it was incredibly inspiring and added to the overall vacation. if ever in westport connecticut, please stop by.
