From an extreme skiing outpost in Alaska’s Chugach Mountains to a sophisticated bar in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, the architecture of Lindy Roy combines fluid, folding forms with innovative responses to context and construction. The first publication devoted to her work, this catalogue — accompanying an exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art — marks the inaugural volume of the museum’s Design Series. An essay by curator Joseph Rosa provides an overview of Roy’s career, while short texts by Darrin Alfred introduce nine of the architect’s most significant projects, including a floating spa in Botswana’s Okavango River Delta, an urban oasis in New York, a Houston residence designed for low-income communities, and the acclaimed Manhattan Vitra store.
