"Robert Stacy-Judd (1884–1975) came to learn of Mayan architecture through Catherwood’s etchings...He filtered his perceptions of the ancient Maya through esoteric ideas about the spiritual power of the ruins. Unlike other more formalist and modernist appropriations of the pre-Columbian past, such as those by Frank Lloyd Wright, Stacy-Judd’s buildings reveal a sensibility that is more theatrical than architectural."-Cabinet.
