Wallace Cunningham

New materials are allowing a thinness and economy in architecture.”  – Wallace Cunningham, San Diego based residential architect

This economy speaks not only to stylistic minimalism, but also to a reduced weight of resources needed to build a structure. Lightweight concrete, carbon fibers and cable structures incorporated into the architecture add a streamlined elegance, while reducing the environmental footprint.

The guiding principle to Cunningham’s work, stated on his website, is “Open up a structure to the undulating space of sky, landscape, and view, and the building becomes an ever evolving organism”. His exploratory design engages the surrounding natural environment, increasing our appreciation of it.
