CHARACTER BUILDINGS, LAKE VILLAGE, AND BRUCE GOFF
This issue presents Bruce Goff’s involvement in Bruce Plunkett’s Lake Village development (sometimes referred to as The Villages at Lake Palestine), a planned community just outside Tyler, Texas. Goff’s involvement in the project was multi-faceted, with designs for both custom and speculative homes. However, in an essay by Craig Lee, the focus is on Goff’s non-residential aspects of the development. As it certainly isn’t an all encompassing tome on the entire subject, we are hopeful that perhaps this might spur on further scholarly research for a much more comprehensive publication of the complete venture in the future.
The second half of the issue offers a glimpse of never before seen or published images of Bruce Goff taken by Bruce Plunkett. Plunkett was initially a student of Goff’s who later became Goff’s friend, builder, client, and patron.
