He created buildings serving people whose needs exceeded their means: the Lanare Community Center for Riverdale, California (1969) is one of the earliest. Other examples of architecture designed by Dyson to enhance and celebrate the common experience include a fine arts building proposed for Monterey, California (1966) and a Native American Indian Center for Fresno (1975)."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"Born in 1940, Dyson realized his affection for architecture was not based on what he saw around him but on what was missing\u2014interesting forms built from unusual materials and, most importantly, a lyrical and organic sense of life in new structures. In the 1960s, houses and public buildings were typically boxes or rectangles built of stainless steel with lots of glass; they felt cold and while practical, rarely were they creatively designed. He was determined to change this, and he did and has made organic architecture his focus throughout his career."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"As he began to establish himself, this then-young architect created new structures and also remodeled existing ones in what would become his signature organic style. His structures moved earth into mounds, cast concrete into fluid walls, and were lit by Plexiglas bubbles where sunlight enlivened his interior spaces. He used wood as a decorative element on his facades, allowing it to be geometric by bending it to activate a building\u2019s visual presence."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"From his Fresno-based office during the ensuing decades, Arthur Dyson designed and built the structures listed below, among many other projects.
